Course content

The MBA is uniquely focused on the wider fashion sector, enabling participants to broaden their careers beyond their own specific experiences, developing a greater strategic approach, confidence and understanding that can equip them for more senior roles and greater responsibilities.

You will be taught by staff with significant fashion business experience and access to the fashion industry through consultancies and research. LCF maintains close relationships with industry leaders, which underpins the MBA’s curriculum, enabling participants to learn from industry case studies and from sector specialists. This engaging learning experience will provide you with the opportunity to acquire new knowledge and skills to succeed in a wide variety of fashion enterprises. During the course you will be able to enhance your evaluative, analytical and problem-solving skills by combining growing theoretical knowledge with applied fashion industry knowledge. The MBA also supports students in building important soft skills relevant to career development, including networking skills, communication skills and resilience.

This course is based at High Holborn and John Prince’s Street. High Holborn (HH) is a 20 minute walk to JPS and 10 minutes to Covent Garden and all that has to offer. Based in the heart of Oxford Street, John Princes Street (JPS) is LCF’s most central site and is close to many of London’s main attractions, points of interest and of course, shops. We are however, planning to move to a new single campus on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in 2023. This is part of a new development for London, prioritising culture, education and innovation, known as East Bank. 

London College of Fashion, UAL, leads the world in fashion business, media and design education. We’ve been nurturing creative talent for over a century, offering courses in all things fashion. With our philosophy of open and inclusive education, we encourage students to examine the past and question the present. To develop inventive, assertive ideas that challenge social and political agendas. And we give them the skills, opportunities – and above all, the freedom – to put those ideas into practice.
