Fashioning New Horizons for The Art Institute

A big congratulations is in order for The Art Institute with locations in Houston, Colorado, Pittsburgh and even online. They have broadened their degree program for the fashion side to incorporate both Fashion and Retail Management together as a Bachelor degree level program. This is great news to future students who want to work in the fashion industry beyond the every day retail fashion jobs.

Not everyone who receives a fashion degree wants to actually do designing. With this new Fashion and Retail Management degree program starting in fall of 2007, graduates will receive a more rounded education that not only provides strong emphasis in fashion design but also the business side which could incorporate retail, manufacturing and marketing. This bachelor level education will give students a strong foundation in business as well as presentation and writing skills.

What is so great about this program is that students will also be able to take courses online for this degree program. This feature will help those students who must work and take care of family. The job market in fashion is growing and this degree program is a great answer to that growth. Graduates will have even better job prospects than before.

Among the fields of fashion that graduates might find work in are positions assisting designers in both the retail and manufacturing aspects and even online e-commerce enterprises. The possibilities for graduates are endless! Just think about all the types of clothing and fashions. Fashion and Retail Management graduates could find jobs with department stores as merchandisers, managers, or fashion coordinators. They could work in exclusively women, men's or children's clothing. Then there are the fashion niches like sports apparel, jewelry, home decor, footwear and much more.

The new bachelor degree program in Fashion and Retail Management will open a lot more doors for its students and graduates. The Art Institute is showing their progressive nature by staying a little ahead of the growing demand of the fashion industry. This means that graduates will likely have an easier time finding a job and those companies who look to The Art Institute for a pool of potential entry-level employees will find that they are more on the ball and better prepared than ever before.

Up and coming students of The Art Institute should know that the Bachelor of Fashion and Retail Management program will take approximately three years to complete or about 180 credit hours – on par with a number of university programs. All that work will be worth it though to the new graduates as they will be up to the challenge of entering the fashion business world.
