The IED Diploma in Fashion Business aims to provide students with the necessary tools to effectively manage a company in the textile and fashion sector.

Students will complete their studies with a dual profile in which, on the one hand, they will have in-depth knowledge of the design and production processes of the fashion industry and, on the other hand, they will obtain knowledge and skills to manage and administer fashion companies.


Information to decide

Students will learn about the economic, legal and organisational framework governing companies in the fashion industry, learning to analyse and manage a company with the needs of today and to apply the necessary digital tools (e-business, e-commerce, etc.).

This programme provides students with the creative capacity necessary to innovate in management and resources and to lead any business change.

Students will also work with a teaching team made up of leading professionals from the fashion industry, who pass on both theoretical and specific technical knowledge.

The balance between the creative and the business mentality enables students to influence companies’ supply chain and the product life-cycle with responsibility and sensitivity towards demand from consumers and from the market itself.
