Fashion and Textile Design at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University has long been an area of international significance. Practitioners, typically in buying offices or trading houses, face increasingly complex challenges in terms of technological advancement, globalising management and the intractable diversity of worldwide market requirements. 


These challenges are associated with various well-partitioned educational disciplines, from global product design and merchandising, and the management of supply and quality, to marketing and branding. Through this MA programme, graduates can integrate these forms of disciplinary knowledge and advance their own expertise, analytical skills and visions to a more sophisticated postgraduate level. Graduates are knowledgeable in innovative practices for today's textile and fashion business, and can effectively manage globally dispersed interacting business tasks.


Fashion and Textile Design at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University is a mixed-mode programme with a requirement of 30 credits. There are two specialisms for selection: Fashion Merchandising and Global Fashion Management. Prospective students should have undergraduate majors in textiles and fashion (clothing), and textile-related management disciplines. Priority will be given to those candidates with substantial work experience in fashion and textile business.
