About the Fashion Merchandising Concentration
The Fisher College Fashion Merchandising concentration is where management meets fashion. To accomplish this, we often step outside of the classroom and take you on field trips that include: meetings with executives in top firms, consultations with local entrepreneurs, and visits to apparel businesses and retailers that operate in Boston's fashionable Back Bay. Students will discover and embrace creative and imaginative instincts to connect trading and enterprising skills within the apparel, textile and home furnishings industries. Travel and study abroad programs inspire students both visually and culturally in their fashion studies and future workplace endeavors.
