The postgraduate course program is divided in two parts:
A conceptual part, nourished with lectures by several professionals working in the different stages of the production process for a visual merchandising (interior design, retail, window dressing, fashion product and branding), and a practical part, where a study case is developed so students apply the knowledge they acquire.
Throughout the course there will be educational visits outside the school as a complement for certain subjects.
Study the new purchaser profile to offer a new concept of a Visual Merchandiser and deepen into fashion history and the current functioning of fashion products, so to understand and obtain a solid cultural foundation.
Those interested with studies in fashion and marketing or having work experience in the field of fashion, commerce or similar.
Professionals trained in the field of industrial design, architecture or interior design interested in directing their activity towards visual merchandising and fashion retail.
Enterpreneurs thinking about starting their own fashion business, and in need of a training to initiate their business venture on very solid theoretical and practical foundations.
The course is particularly aimed at those who, in addition to their interest on the world of fashion and visual merchandising, want to start an individual or joint business venture. In this way, the students’ professional outcomes range from being an active part in a visual merchandising management team to coordinating of one’s own sales space.
