LIM College Celebrates 80th Anniversary
April 2, 2019
This September, LIM College will turn 80.
Founded in 1939 as a one-year certificate program exclusively for women, today LIM College is a master’s degree-level institution with Middle States and Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs accreditation, multiple online degree programs, and a growing international presence.
To affirm its commitment to expanding that global footprint, LIM is introducing two new initiatives that coincide with the College’s 80th anniversary.
A three-week summer immersion program, dubbed “NYC Fashion Experience,” will introduce international students and professionals to the fashion business while offering an opportunity to explore New York City. In the fall, a “Global Fashion Pathway” program will allow international students to simultaneously improve their English language skills and begin studies in an LIM College degree program.
Says LIM College President Elizabeth S. Marcuse, “As fashion and its related businesses continue to change and increase in complexity, LIM College understands the challenge of preparing people from all corners of the globe to compete for career opportunities in a technologically advanced society. With new programs for international students, a continuously evolving curriculum, and a growing community of alumni who have built successful careers in all areas of fashion—and beyond it—LIM is moving into our ninth decade with unbounded energy and optimism.”
