Managing business in the ever-evolving markets of design, fashion, and the luxury goods is a challenging task. Managers of the sector have to handle creativity, corporate image, and volatility while pursuing long term profitability through sound marketing strategies, efficient distribution plans, quality sourcing, etc.

The Design, Fashion and Luxury Goods concentration offers a unique opportunity to blend theory with experience thanks to the exclusive expertise of the most successful Italian companies in these sectors. The University of Bologna has a long tradition in training talented mangers to steer these leading companies.

The MBA Design, Fashion and Luxury Goods is an intensive 12-month international program taught entirely in English. Participants will be able to experience first-hand the specific knowledge that Italy has developed in these fields joining creativity, style and unique managerial practices.

Internship & Career
Creating employability is one of the primary goals of the MBA Design, Fashion & Luxury Goods program. Therefore, interaction between theory and practice is an essential part of the curriculum: master lectures, testimonials, analysis of business cases, and incompany visits will take place throughout the year and will go side by side the core academic courses.

The program also includes a 500-hour internship scheduled in the last period of the program. Internships will take place at some of the leading companies of the design, fashion, and luxury goods sector of the region. The internship represents an opportunity for MBA participants to analyze real company problems, develop strategies, and elaborate action plans together with upper level managers.

BBS's partners have been involved in our academic activities over the years in many different ways: participating in project works, master lectures, and testimonials, offering scholarships, hosting our student internships, or employing our alumni.
