LIM College, the New York-based fashion business school, is launching a master’s degree program in global fashion supply chain management this fall. The new 30-credit, one-year master of professional studies (MPS) program was recently granted approval by the New York State Board of Regents.
The College says the program is designed for professionals who want to advance into strategic management roles.
Elizabeth Marcuse, president of LIM College, commented, “For fashion companies, and the host of related industries that support them, the necessity of competing in a global marketplace combined with the challenges associated with e-commerce business models have made the inner workings of the supply chain more complex and critical than ever. Companies are faced with the demands of a fast-fashion production cycle, requests for sustainable sourcing solutions, and the challenges of managing a global sourcing network. This translates into an increasing need for professionals with an advanced level of supply chain and logistics knowledge.”
LIM College was founded in 1939. The school, which has four buildings in Manhattan, offers undergraduate and graduate-level programs focused on the business of fashion.
