The Postgraduate in Fashion Product Management provides a strategic view of how fashion products work, bearing in mind a brand’s positioning and values, so as to optimise their collections all the way from inception to the moment they reach the consumer.
In this highly competitive context, the Postgraduate Degree fosters an understanding of product processes (efficient management and organisation), marketing strategies and communication, as well as inspiration mechanisms and the ability to develop trends from a creative and cultural perspective.
The program strikes a balance between the analytical side and the creative side and provides knowledge of each functional area with which the fashion product manager is expected to interact (retail, visual, artistic direction, communication) so as to encourage a 360° strategy.
Its main objectives are to:
– Work with brand analysis tools to build the brand through the product.
– Emphasise the importance of cooperation between the design, marketing, sales and production teams to carry out the strategy that has been defined.
– Introduce the main types of suppliers, materials, outsourcing and logistics that surround a fashion product.
– Analyse trends and art direction in order to focus the collections from the creative, conceptual and stylistic point of view.
– Define the structure, breadth and depth of collections by analysing sales, the competition and trends in order to develop a collection with the optimum final value, time and costs.
– Analyse in depth the product range and its efficiency at the POS using the product managers’ work.
– Give a knowledge of consumer analysis, competition studies, team management, scheduling and project development that is based on the design thinking methodology.
– Understand the level of involvement of each of the players (design, product, marketing and communication) in the success of the collection.
The presentation of the content will be divided into classes, modules and exercises that mimic the process and management of a professional fashion project.
The course will therefore be organised into different types of classes: theoretical classes, experimental classes: case studies, workshops, talks by professionals.
The postgraduate ends with a final project carried out in conjunction with a company from the sector, with the aim of the students’ learning to use the knowledge they have acquired in a real market situation.
