BERKELEY COLLEGE® ONLINE PROVIDES FLEXIBILITY TO FASHION STUDENTS 

 

Berkeley College is pleased to announce that it has received approval to offer its popular Fashion Marketing & Management Associate’s and Bachelor’s degrees completely online.

 

“These are not just courses,” cites Berkeley College Online Dean Dr. Susan Biro. “These are unique in that they are total online degree programs that combine the business of fashion with career preparation and placement.”

 

“The new online programs are for busy people – most who are already working – and want to take their careers to the next level,” says Berkeley College Chair of Fashion Marketing & Management Guy Adamo. “These programs mirror Berkeley’s onsite Fashion Marketing and Management degree curriculum that includes a strong Liberal Arts component and is stimulating, innovative, and trendy.”

 

The Fashion Marketing and Management degree curriculum is designed with the help of an advisory board of industry professionals, including designers, product developers, buyers, and visual merchandisers, ensuring that graduates are well prepared to fill industry needs. Students are taught by professors with extensive experience and impressive credentials in the fashion industry.

 

Some of the required courses for both degrees include Introduction to the Fashion Business, Computer Applications for the Fashion Industry, Merchandise Planning and Buying, Fashion Forecasting, Home Merchandising, and Product Lifecycle Planning.

 “Berkeley College Online students benefit from a flexible learning environment, and direct support services that include online professionals in Student Development, Library, Advising, and Career Services,” says Berkeley College Online Campus Operating Officer Sharon Goldstein.

The new online Fashion Marketing and Management degree courses begin in January 2008, and students can enroll in the programs from any location in the world. After online fashion students complete their coursework, including internships, they are ready to enter careers in various merchandising areas such as visual merchandising, buying, allocation and planning and showroom sales.

A leader in business education for more than 75 years, Berkeley College currently maintains an enrollment of more than 6,000 students, with nearly 600 international students in its Baccalaureate and Associate degree programs. The College maintains two New York campuses in Midtown Manhattan and White Plains, an Extension Center in Lower Manhattan in the Wall Street area, and four New Jersey campuses located in West Paterson, Paramus, Woodbridge, and Newark. In addition, the College offers Berkeley College Online and its Corporate Learning Partnership program. Information about the Fashion Marketing and Management programs may be found at the College’s website at www.berkeleycollege.edu/bachelors/Fashion_Marketing/ .
