My Student Experience
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have absolutely loved my time at FIT! I have learned so much about the industry of fashion. FIT is beyond the means of a traditional university because it fosters uniqueness as well as innovation. Being alongside so many talented people, you are constantly pushed outside of your comfort zone! <br><i> Review provided by EDUopinions (www.eduopinions.com)</i>

Good marketing program
Isabella rated 4 out of 5 stars

In my opinion this is a solid university. I am in the direct marketing program. They seem to have a solid program making sure we understand the foundation of marketing and the different avenues our degrees will allow us to dip into. <br><i> Review provided by EDUopinions (www.eduopinions.com)</i>
