A think tank of innovative leadership, the Cosmetics and Fragrance Marketing and Management program at the Fashion Institute of Technology SUNY provides advanced education for emerging executives, fostering both creative and analytical business skills. Students obtain a global perspective through field studies in multiple overseas markets. Through academic and experiential learning and an Executive Mentor Program, the curriculum facilitates the development of empathic leaders with the objective of shepherding brands that are global corporate citizens with products that delight and inspire the consumer.
With over 200 successful graduates, the CFMM program is designed for individuals working in cosmetics, fragrances, and beauty-related areas who have been recommended by their employers because of their strong management potential. A key requirement for admission is a minimum of three years of related work experience at the corporate level. The average number of years of work experience among entering students is seven.
The capstone project (final thesis) reflects the partnership between industry and the classroom. Working in teams, graduating students develop an innovative, in-depth, interdisciplinary approach to a strategic topic determined by the faculty. They present their results to a panel of faculty and industry experts at an industry-sponsored event. In addition, students present their research to industry associations such as The Fragrance Foundation, retailers such as Macy’s, and executives at companies like L'Oréal and Johnson & Johnson.
