ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT: Elleyse Gemondo (Online MPS ’18)
January 16, 2018
Why did you decide to earn your master’s degree online instead of on campus?
Attending LIM College Online gave me the best of both worlds. I was able to continue learning and progressing in my job—I’m a Merchandising Assistant at Gabe’s Headquarters in Morgantown, West Virginia—while also working towards an advanced degree. I love my job and I’m trying to work my way up the ladder to achieve my dream of becoming a buyer.
What school did you get your bachelor’s degree from?
I graduated with cum laude honors from West Virginia University in May 2014 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Fashion Merchandising and Design.
Why did you choose LIM College for your master’s degree?
I wanted a school that was based on the business side of fashion rather than design. I also wanted a school located in New York City. After visiting LIM College’s campus, I knew it was the perfect choice for me—and I could not have been more right.
How has your master’s degree helped you in your career?
The Fashion Merchandising & Retail Management program taught me so much about the buying world. Having a master’s degree enhances my fashion skills and allows me to be even more aware of what’s going on in the industry. Eventually, I’d also like to earn a Ph.D. and become a professor.
