3.      Equip students with much-needed skills in the design industry

The primary objectives of the Fashion Management program are to provide graduates with both soft skills and hard skills to help them grow in the fashion industry. Top-notch technical skills, mastery in contextual knowledge, and ICT application are all considered important to offer the best responsive solution to the industry. Graduates are also equipped with effective communication and entrepreneurship skills with professional ethics to make sure they are socially aware and responsible as fashion professionals.

As undergraduates, students are required to demonstrate and apply the theoretical design concepts, history, culture, and temporary issues of the fashion industry. They also demonstrate their communication and marketing skills to promote their products and eventually identify problems and propose innovative solutions through their design based on a research approach.

4.      Prospective career for the graduates

Students will be prepared for the prospective career ahead during their four years of study in Fashion Management. The integrated curriculum is created to provide students with technical and non-technical skills to grow in the industry.

The Fashion Management program offers internships for each student. Therefore, they could conduct real projects to develop their ability when they are involved in professional practice, introducing the real workplace experience and teaching them to cope with the demands of the working environment.

The Fashion Management program in BINUS Northumbria School of Design also conducts a series of field trips to the professionals and industries to give the students good grounds for a broad overview of the industry.

5.      Variety of assessment tasks rather than exams

Exams are both dreadful and boring for all students, but it is something a student will never encounter in this program. Rather than exams, most coursework is assessed through a variety of tasks, such as assignments, individual and group projects, peer assessment, thesis/final project reports, reflective practice, and so on.

To be a good fashion designer, skill is not everything you need. It is also important to find a supportive environment to polish and sharpen it, so you will be ready to tackle every arising challenge once you take the first step into the fashion industry.
