LIM College has received approval from the New York State Education Department to offer a new Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree programme in Business of Fashion. Launching in January of 2020, the programme will offer students an opportunity to streamline their education and earn their bachelor’s degree in two years or less.

The new programme is designed specifically for transfer students who have already earned at least 60 college credits or hold an associate degree. The programme will be offered in both on-campus and online formats. Required coursework includes marketing, product development, retailing, and accounting. And, as 'learning by doing' has been an essential component of LIM's educational approach throughout the college's 80-year history, students will also be required to complete two internships, said the institute in a press release.

"Given the increasing complexity and bottom-line focus in the fashion industry, this programme will equip students with the essential knowledge and skills they'll need to succeed, whether their goal is to launch their own line or work for an established brand. Because it provides maximum flexibility in recognising credits earned at other colleges, the BBA in the Business of Fashion will be a particularly appealing option for those seeking a more affordable way to earn their bachelor's degree," said LIM College provost Lisa Springer.

Founded in 1939, LIM College educates students for success in the global business of fashion and its many related industries. As a pioneer in experiential education, LIM College fosters a unique connection between real-world experience and academic study in business principles, offering master's, bachelor's and associate degree programs. LIM College is located in four buildings in Manhattan — the nation's fashion and business capital — giving students vast opportunities for hands-on experience and professional development. Alumni have gone on to excel at top companies, including Amazon, Refinery29, Harper's Bazaar, Chanel, and Neiman Marcus. (PC)
