Fashion is about so much more than designing clothes. There are trends to predict, models to style, and brands to build. That’s where LIM College comes in. We provide an education for the real world of fashion. The business world.
If you're interested in preparing for a career in the fashion business, LIM College is the perfect place to do it. Looking to transfer from another school? No problem. Transfer students make up a significant portion of our student body, so we know how to make your transition seamless.
Are you ready to get started?
Step into the new digital age of journalism with a full understanding of how content affects consumer behavior. Our Fashion Media major prepares you to work as a one-person production unit, or as part of a larger team at publishing houses, fashion magazines, and other media platforms.
The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) program in Fashion Merchandising & Management program gives you a foundation to begin— or continue— a career in fashion or enter a bachelor’s degree program. You will learn how business is conducted in the fashion and related industries, with an emphasis on the acquisition of knowledge and skills that can provide a competitive advantage in the workplace. And best of all, you can do it wherever you are.
If you want to lead anything from a high-profile clothing brand to your own startup, Management might be the right major for you. As a Management major, you’ll learn how all the parts of an organization work together and how to make strategic decisions about what a company should do to become and stay successful.
Explore the power of the image and its critical role in creative industries. In addition to core business courses, you’ll dive into areas such as visual communication, digital design, and visual merchandising, where, through hands-on studio experience, you’ll develop visual, creative, and technological skills.
If you want to learn about almost everything in the fashion business—from product development, buying and planning, and sustainability to styling, marketing, and event planning –then Fashion Merchandising is the major you’re looking for. You’ll be exposed to the entire industry, learning how the various parts work together.
As an International Business major, you’ll learn how all parts of a company work—and acquire a global frame of reference, with opportunities for in-depth learning about other people, places, and cultures. What you learn will not just be applicable to fashion. You can use this degree to build a business career in any industry with an international dimension.
Thanks to advances in technology, including social media, there are more ways than ever before for brands to reach consumers. As a Marketing major, you’ll learn how to use strategy and creativity to help brands stand out and forge crucial connections with their target customers.
This program provides maximum flexibility in recognizing the credits you’ve already earned at other colleges, regardless of what you previously majored in. Whether your goal is to launch your own fashion line or work for an established brand, you’ll graduate with the essential knowledge and skills needed to succeed in the increasingly complex and bottom-line oriented world of fashion.
93% of LIM's Class of 2018 who sought employment after graduation secured positions throughout the fashion and related industries.
If you’re craving the full New York City fashion experience, I can’t recommend LIM College enough. You learn to refocus your mind from the textbook to the real world and that’s going to set you apart from other students (and people) for the rest of your life.Edel Singh (‘16)
