From classroom learning and hands-on practical experience to real-world projects with Microsoft Garage mentors, Undergraduate in Fashion Marketing Management students will learn about new business and marketing opportunities presented by the Metaverse, the latest tools and technologies and how they can be the ones who move the fashion industry forward.
Giornetti talked about how creativity will change in the future, comparing it to what we know now. "Today's process of developing ideas still rely on manual labor and artisanal techniques but these days there is no difference between then and now when you're talking about virtual worlds where people share their emotions and values work together seamlessly through technology," explained Giornetti.
