LIM College Launches MBA Program
The only MBA degree program in the U.S. with concentrations in Fashion Management and Entrepreneurship 3/1/2009
LIM College, the nation’s only college focused exclusively on the study of business and fashion, has launched a Master of Business Administration degree program with concentrations in Fashion Management and Entrepreneurship.
The only program of its kind in the United States, LIM College’s MBA program educates students in advanced concepts and theories of management, leadership and entrepreneurship within the context of global challenges and specifically for the application of those theories within the business of fashion.
In announcing the program, Elizabeth S. Marcuse, President of LIM College said, “LIM College’s MBA program will create ideas that deepen and advance understanding of the fashion industry and with those ideas develop innovative, principled, and insightful leaders who can move the industry forward into the future.”
Ideal for fashion industry employees with two or more years of working experience who want to advance their careers, young international professionals who want to change careers and become managers in the fashion industry, and fashion entrepreneurs, LIM College’s MBA classes are offered after work hours to accommodate these groups’ scheduling needs.
“Our new MBA program will create ideas that deepen and advance understanding of the fashion industry and with those ideas develop innovative, principled, and insightful leaders who can move the industry forward into the future.”
According to President Marcuse, “Our MBA program meets a growing need in the retail and fashion industries. Larger U.S. companies are planning to hire more people who hold MBA degrees. And even though many MBA programs already exist, there are no programs specifically focused on entrepreneurial smaller businesses in the fashion industry, despite the fact that small businesses continue to be a vital part of the industry. LIM College’s MBA program fills this need for talent for both larger and smaller fashion enterprises. This is another significant development in our strategic expansion to solidify our position as the leading college for the study of business and fashion.”
