The school’s academic offer is split between bachelor’s and master’s degrees and executive education initiatives. Bachelor’s programmes are offered in the areas of fashion, design and art.

The master’s programme is also built around fashion, design and art, with each course offering greater depth than in the undergraduate programme. Courses available to master students include fashion styling, photography and film, luxury accessories design and management, surface and textile design, design management and curatorial management.

Executive courses are focused on fashion and design, while a selection of short courses is also available.
