FIDM's unique concentrated program in beauty merchandising has been compared to a Master's in beauty product development. Students collaborate to develop a new product or service and then present it to professionals from hair, makeup, fragrance, and wellness companies. Internships with top beauty brands include Smashbox, Urban Decay, Orly, and Lorac. Each student graduates with a professional portfolio showcasing his or her work.
