About

In an era of massive digitalization in which individuals have indirect communications through the intermediary of a screen, it is psychologically reassuring to believe that the construction of one’s style mirrors its representation as an individual. However, just like any other languages, Fashion has a myriad of nuances and facets that render any reading and interpretation much more complex.  

The main objective of the MBA in Fashion Business at IFA Paris is to equip its postgraduate students with keys to decipher the ever changing fashion industry. Delivered since 2008, the course has been completely revamped in order to take full advantage of IFA Paris’ heritage and cultural specificities. IFA Paris’ Fashion Business program is designed to deliver a broader scope of the Fashion industry.

Started in 2008, the program embeds the latest trends and techniques of the Fashion industry. Its three specialization provide exposure to all current key markets in order to meet all career requirements.

The focus on experiential learning through industry sponsored projects in cooperation with international brands, industry seminars and each student’s Capstone Project, ensures IFA Paris Fashion Business graduates are market-ready.
