FAQ
Are there any scholarships for the Fashion Business program at Istituto Marangoni Miami?
Upon acceptance into the program, students are able to apply to a partial scholarship based on their portfolio and scholarship essay evaluation.
Is there a difference between a fashion marketing and a fashion business program?
A fashion marketing program typically focuses specifically on marketing strategies and techniques within the context of the fashion industry. Students in such programs learn about consumer behavior, market research, branding, advertising, public relations, digital marketing, and retailing as they relate to fashion products and brands. The curriculum often emphasizes creative marketing strategies tailored to the unique aspects of the fashion industry, such as trend forecasting and fashion show production. On the other hand, a fashion business program encompasses a broader scope of topics related to the business side of the fashion industry. While it may include elements of marketing, it also covers other aspects such as management, entrepreneurship, finance, supply chain management, merchandising, product development, and sustainability. Students in fashion business programs gain a comprehensive understanding of the entire fashion industry ecosystem and are prepared for various roles beyond marketing, such as retail management, brand management, product development, and entrepreneurship.
