In the Merchandise Product Development Program, students live and breathe a brand in the classroom to prepare them for their careers. They study the business, design, and technical processes that will turn a great idea into a finished product. Collaborating with major brands like Zara and Urban Outfitters in simulated industry workrooms, students practice all the skills necessary for success in the fashion industry.
Speakers from top companies (think Zara, Topshop, 7 for All Mankind, TOMS Shoes, ModCloth, Old Navy, and Halston) come onsite for Q&A panels and lectures. Our field trips give behind-the-scenes tours of trend offices, working factories, and showrooms. Students graduate with a portfolio of work for a variety of companies, products, and brands that makes them highly employable.
