The Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design has announced that it is now offering an MA in Fashion Media Practice validated by the University of Buckingham.
The Masters course is a unique, industry-focused programme that offers three possible pathways, all of which focus on the core area of Condé Nast’s media expertise - media business, fashion journalism and creative direction. These distinct specialisms draw upon the unrivalled knowledge and practice of Condé Nast Publications and the wider fashion and media industries. The programme will combine independent research with taught academic content, talks and master-classes from leading industry professionals. A limited number of work experience places at Condé Nast will also be available to the highest achieving students on this course.
Susie Forbes, principal of the Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design says, “We are very excited to now be offering postgraduate provision and look forward to welcoming our first cohort of students in October this year.”
College Dean Angela Jones adds, “This is an innovative programme that offers genuine insight and access to opportunities in fashion and media. As a practice-oriented master’s each of the three distinct subject options provides a balanced educational experience that connects industry with academia.”
In addition, an MA in Luxury Brand Management, in association with Richmond University, The American University in London, is also now on offer. The full-time one-year intensive programme is designed to develop the management, marketing and entrepreneurial skills to explore an exciting career in luxury goods and fashion brands management.
Other courses on offer at the Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design include the two-year intensive BA (Hons) Fashion Communication Degree, validated by the University of Buckingham, the year-long Vogue Fashion Diploma plus a brand new year-long Foundation programme. The College also offers a range of shorter courses including the ten-week Vogue Fashion Certificate, the four-week Vogue Summer Intensive, the Teen Weekend course and week-long courses in Fashion Business, Fashion Styling, Fashion Journalism and the Business of Beauty.
