NEW YORK — The Fashion Institute of Technology is setting up a road show.

For the first time, the School of Graduate Studies of FIT is offering a multinational Master of Professional Studies degree program in global fashion management.

To encourage enrollment among working professionals, the full-time program is being offered in the evenings and on weekends. To graduate with a MPS degree from the school in their home country and certificates for their participation in the seminars at the other two institutions, students must take 36 credit hours over three semesters.

During the course of the program, a two-week seminar will be held in New York, two weeks at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and two weeks at the Institut Francais de la Mode in Paris. Students will study marketing in New York, luxury goods in Paris and manufacturing in Hong Kong. Along the way, they will learn from industry professionals who will serve as professors and guest lecturers.

The curriculum aims to prepare students for executive positions in the fashion industry. John Mincarelli, associate chair of Global Fashion Management, said, “This Master of Professional Studies program is unrivaled among graduate business degrees. It takes place on three continents at educational institutions chosen for the expertise of their faculty and areas of specialization.”
