What Our Students Learn

In our program students learn the skills to:

  • Launch a business venture or run an existing company.
  • Utilize analytical, planning, and management tools.
  • Employ entrepreneurial strategy.
  • Determine whether a business model is feasible.
  • Navigate the global business environment.

Why FIDM?

Students intern with companies such as Gucci, Smashbox, Saks Fifth Avenue, MTV, NBC/Universal, WWD (Women's Wear Daily), and Vogue. The entire Business Management program is available online via eLearning so that students can start or continue their careers while earning their Bachelor's degree.

In the final quarter, the students are divided into teams and tasked with selecting a real company and dissecting it, making strategic recommendations as if they are consultants. Students leave the program having completed a feasibility study on a startup and developed a business model for a company that defines how it will generate revenue.

Many of the courses in the program follow an MBA model, which builds upon case studies." - George Sims, Bachelor of Business Management Department Chair
