Making the decision to get an advanced degree is far from easy. Yet in the business of fashion, a graduate degree is a worthwhile investment that can set you apart from the corporate competition. In just 12 months and 30 credits, a Master of Professional Studies (MPS) degree can put you on (or lead you further down) your dream career path.

Here are some signs you should go for your MPS in Fashion Merchandising & Retail Management:

Career development is your goal. LIM’s MPS in Fashion Merchandising & Retail Management puts a big emphasis on helping you build a network of fashion industry connections that take shape during the course of the program and will continue throughout your career.

Your worldview is global. You already love the business of fashion, so you know the industry reaches far beyond the U.S. The MPS in Fashion Merchandising & Retail Management accepts students from all over the globe, bringing different perspectives together to collaborate and work across cultures.

The challenge of retail excites you. If you’re ready to tackle the rapid changes transforming brick-and-mortar retail, execute an online selling strategy, or differentiate a retail brand from its ever-expanding list of competitors, MPS coursework will help you get there. Your coursework will focus on how to solve real-world industry challenges.

“Management” is your middle name. An advanced degree often lends itself to a future role in leadership—and the MPS is no different (management is in its name for a reason!). Our faculty bring a wealth of knowledge to the classroom after years of experience in the fashion industry, and some even hold prominent fashion positions in the fashion business while they teach. It’s their goal to pass on expertise that will help position you as a future fashion leader.

You’re looking for fashion — and flexibility. The MPS in Fashion Merchandising & Retail Management can be completed online or on campus. That means you get to complete the program in the way that works best for you—whether you work full-time and prefer to study online, or if you prefer having the in-person experience to fine-tune the personal interaction you’ll have in the retail world.
