International Fashion Retail B.Sc. / Textile Chain Research M.Sc.

Bachelor of Science International Fashion Retail

The combination of the small number of study places offered, the outstanding technical equipment available to students and staff, and the excellent business-studies modules in the syllabus ensures excellent learning conditions on this program. Professors and teaching staff have detailed knowledge of the textile, clothing and retail business sectors, and work together with students on scientific or applied retail and industrial projects. This gives the students a valuable stepping stone towards a successful career.

Each semester new students are selected in an assessment center which includes representatives from textiles companies. It is recommended that all students spend one semester abroad at a university or in an international internship semester. The degree program in International Fashion Retail combines general business knowledge with a focus on retailing, and graduates are qualified to take up a career in retail management.

The high academic standards of the School and of the whole University, the practical orientation of the program, the many contacts with the clothing industry and retail companies already as an undergraduate: all of these factors combine to give students a good foundation for a successful start to their careers.

The programme includes a complete semester taught in English (which is also available for international exchange students), and a number of projects in the Fashion and Retail Industry. In addition company excursions worldwide are undertaken during the semester and an internship semester in the textile industry as well as the study abroad semester are compulsory; the Bachelor’s thesis is usually written in collaboration with a company.
