Discover the LIM difference
At LIM, we take the theoretical into the real world. Build practical skills through multiple internships, industry engagement activities, and networking opportunities. And you won’t just learn what’s driving the fashion and lifestyle trends of today—you’ll be a part of what’s coming next.
In 1939, Maxwell F. Marcuse founded the Laboratory Institute of Merchandising (LIM). From its inception, LIM educated students in the business of fashion through a unique combination of traditional classroom instruction and real-world experience. Recognizing its expanding scope beyond traditional merchandising, the institution rebranded as LIM College in 2009. This transformation reflected our commitment to preparing graduates for the ever-evolving world of fashion, business, and lifestyle.
