Industry Leaders Help Shape Our Curriculum

The Beauty Industry Management Program prepares students to identify, implement, and solve management issues within the beauty industry. Working in teams, students create targeted product lines, implement marketing plans, and develop retail forecasts and production plans. Networking opportunities include travel to San Francisco to meet with management at companies like Sephora, Bare Minerals, and Benefit, plus campus visits from Fortune 500 companies like L’Oreal. Graduates are positioned for higher level jobs in the beauty industry.
