Fashion has been a steadily growing industry for many years around the world. Mexico is no exception and therefore requires professionals with an in-depth understanding of this industry and its marketing strategies: specialists in trends and strategies to help position Mexican fashion as an important part of the country’s economy.
This specialization is about combining entrepreneurship with strong leadership, creating professionals who are influential risk-takers and promotors of competitiveness in this sector.
Students completing this course will have a thorough understanding of fashion and an ability to analyze trends. They will also be able to apply these skills to propose, design, and direct a marketing strategy to meet the demands of the fashion industry at various levels.
The specialization is divided into two semesters. The first includes a review and analysis of the various component parts of fashion marketing, its processes, and how trends are created. The second semester focuses on applying this knowledge to communication strategies, brand knowledge and management for the end-of-course project.
