This is a fashion business course with a vocational focus on buying and merchandising. It combines a postgraduate level academic experience with the vocational realities of retailer buying and merchandising operations. The course covers a range of vocational knowledge and skills for students seeking a career in fashion buying and merchandising, and develops knowledge of both theoretical and practical issues relevant to current practice in the UK buying and merchandising sector. This is integrated with practical professional skills in communication, negotiation and presentation. Distinctive features of the course are the strong links with fashion buying and merchandising offices in the UK and the opportunity afforded by the practical emphasis on skills negotiation in the final project. The course is designed for graduates aiming at a 1st career position in fashion buying or merchandising but who need to supplement their 1st degree with a more relevant academic qualification. The course may also be suitable as a preparation for higher level postgraduate study in related subject areas.
