Course summary

This course equips students with real-world skills and the essential toolkit to create or develop responsible business strategies that keep people and the planet at the heart of fashion business. Available as a one-year master's or a two-year master's with professional practice. The fashion industry faces many challenges, including but not limited to, the climate crisis, ever-increasing social inequality, and the continuing impact of the global pandemic. The creation and management of fashion businesses that operate in a more sustainable and responsible way, whilst ensuring a profitable future has become a very complex situation. This programme is a direct response to the challenges faced by the fashion industry, and therefore directly reflects a growing industry priority for circularity and end-of-life strategies across fashion businesses and fashion supply chains. The primary aim of this programme is to bring critical awareness, strategic thinking, sustainability and innovation to the forefront, by providing an analytical and integrative understanding of sustainable fashion business practices. Using the UN Sustainable Development Goals as a catalyst, students will develop the skills required to research, debate and critically evaluate issues relating to ethics and sustainability in the fashion industry, whilst engaging critically with the contemporary theoretical underpinnings of business and management. Thus, equipping students with real-world skills and the essential toolkit to create or develop responsible business strategies; strategies that keep people and planet at the heart of decision-making.
