The course aims to provide a global perspective to fashion entrepreneurship and focuses on how enterprises operate across the world. In response to changing global opportunities, you will be introduced to the theoretical concepts and reality of transforming an entrepreneurial fashion enterprise into international or global areas in developed economies. You will gain valuable insight into the social and business environment and how this impacts the national differences in the patterns of entrepreneurial activity.

The format for the course delivery is via a global study tour where you will travel to Amsterdam and London. This may include visits to specific fashion events (e.g., trade shows, conferences, fashion weeks), fashion production sites (e.g., manufacturing facilities) and fashion enterprises.
The study tour will also include collaborative projects with classes and assessable tasks hosted by partner institutions. Project briefs will be set by industry.
