Fashion Buying and Merchandising Management

MSc — 1 Year Full-Time

Our MSc Fashion Buying and Merchandising Management programme provides an opportunity for you to develop specialist knowledge of fashion buying and merchandising from a managerial perspective and the skills required to thrive successfully within this fast-paced, competitive, global industry. To achieve this, the course takes a vocational approach with a strong academic underpinning, whilst encouraging creativity.
