Merchandise Product Development
Get Your Degree in Fashion Merchandising in Two Years
The Merchandise Product Development Program readies students to conceptualize, create, produce, and deliver new products and services to consumers. The curriculum focuses on trend research, consumer and brand analysis, marketing, and product design and specifications, and students learn business and supply chain planning and gain practice creating new lines for established and start-up brands. Field trips, behind the scenes tours, and collaborating with major brands like Zara and Urban Outfitters in simulated industry workrooms allows students to master 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.
