Would you like to work in fashion and lifestyle industry and gain wide knowledge within fashion, design, communication and business? Than this programme is just right for you!
The bachelor degree programme in Business is aimed towards the fashion and lifestyle industry and you learn the theory and practice connected with it.
Bachelor in DESIGN and BUSINESS is a top-up study programme of 1½ year with three specialisation directions, all aimed at different markets within the fashion and lifestyle trade.
You can specialize within one of the following courses of study:
- Sustainable FASHION,
- Sustainable COMMUNICATION,
- Sustainable PURCHASE.
During three intense semesters you learn how to plan, manage and carry out complex, analytical and creative assignments with relevant practice and theory.
- Methods and Science Theory.
You will study subject areas such as:
- BRAND DESIGN
A brand designer works strategically and creatively with designing strong brands that tie in with current customer needs and expectations on the basis of in-depth analyses of businesses, markets, cultures and trends.
2. COMMUNICATION, DESIGN AND MEDIA
You will learn to work professionally with market-oriented and visual, written and digital communication – all with a focus to design and process. You will gain a wide range of competencies within rhetoric, visual design, strategy and media literacy, aimed at a job market that demands your particular understanding of the dynamics characterising the media today.
3. FASHION MANAGEMENT
The objective of Fashion Management is to work innovatively and in depth with the entire value chain at management level. Furthermore you will get a solid platform of knowledge within the field of CSR and sustainability. You will be capable of integrating complex, sustainable business issues at management level both practically and theoretically.
4. SUSTAINABLE FASHION DESIGN
At the Sustainable Fashion study you will be educated to explore and design for sustainable fashion solutions and concepts that meet the needs of the real world by challenging existing production and consumption patterns.
Your fashion design skills will be developed in order to create your personal design signature, aesthetic expression and making of garments. At the same time you will be trained to understand the impact your design solutions and concepts have in a social, environmental and economical context both globally and locally. Finally you are trained to communicate internally and externally about these elements.
Internship in a company is also part of the study. You will be an intern in a business in which you can try out your competencies in practice.
During an internship you can test your skills in practice and obtain useful experience with working in the trade. This means that already as a BA student in DESIGN and BUSINESS you will establish a ready-to-use connection and network to the trade.
For their final project all students are encouraged to collaborate with a relevant company.
We are continuously collaborating with a number of companies to ensure that the Design & Business programme is up to date and relevant to the fashion and lifestyle industry.
CLOSE CONTACT WITH COMPANIES
As a main thread through the entire course of your studies, you will be in close contact with companies in cooperation with whom you develop concepts and/or products.
Projects involving companies is an important part of the education. The company gives a presentation to students about the company in general and a specific problem/issue that is subsequently subject for students’ project work. Final feedback is given by lecturers and representatives for the company.
STUDY TRIPS AND COMPANY VISITS
In the course of your study you will also get to visit both companies and educational institutions in Denmark and abroad – e.g. in connection with travels, internship and exchange.
The programme is very much in demand in the business community and you will have good opportunities in small and medium-sized businesses, as well as large manufacturers.
Many graduates also work independently and are self-employed.
As DESIGN and BUSINESS graduate you will typically find work as:
- concept developer,
- brand designer,
- sustainable fashion designer,
- pattern designer.
