Producing the Future of Apparel

Clothing is a fundamental human need and today’s garments are made and sold using new technologies and global strategies. The apparel industry is a fast-paced and highly competitive business. It controls billions of dollars of consumer spending globally and is one of the largest employment sectors. Job opportunities range from research, product design and development, buying, sourcing, and manufacturing to merchandising, marketing, branding, and the promotion of retail products and services. Our program is grounded in a product development model that will prepare you for a wide range of career opportunities.
