About International Fashion Brand Management - Fashion Buying and Merchandising at University of West London
You will excel in maximising turnover and minimising the inventory risk by creating commercially balanced groups of design options and effective lead times, pricing and sourcing strategies that convey the brand DNA while promoting the commercial success of its products.
You will develop an in-depth understanding of the key role of a fashion buyer and merchandiser; from professional competencies and essential retail strategy and operations to personal attributes. You will study the commercial implications for product ranges and supply chain strategies for both UK and overseas markets in an omnichannel environment.
The course puts emphasis on digital developments and sustainable strategies for fashion buying and merchandising.
