School of Design
The concept behind the course represents a new direction in the combination of strategic design, fashion enterprise and social impact. Entrepreneurial design thinking, as part of a corporate or individual environment, serves as a catalyst for economic growth, and this course will provide an opportunity for graduates or those working in the fashion industry, to further their studies and become successful fashion business innovators. The unique structure of study will allow you to develop research, analytical and entrepreneurial skills and become adept at flexible and future focused market thinking.
Core modules studied in the School of Design are: Fashion marketing; Fashion futures; Cultural research methods; Professional and contextual studies or a dissertation.
These will be studied alongside two modules delivered by the Leeds Enterprise Centre, Leeds University Business School: Enterprise and society; Enterprise awareness and new venture creation.
Optional modules include: Fashion communication and photography; Fashion industry analysis; Textile product design, innovation and development.
These taught modules reflect the expertise from both Schools and provide students with a progressive learning experience and perspective on this dynamic discipline. They will develop the potential to challenge and contribute to a thriving global creative business sector. The course embraces both theory and practice to inform future fashion philosophy.
