If you walk into any of our graduate classrooms and introduce yourself, you are likely meet students from all over the world. Our MBA students come from a multitude of countries: China, Brazil, Venezuela, India, Indonesia, Canada, Germany, Turkey, Thailand, Italy, South Korea, Bermuda, Bahamas, Spain, and Australia.

International students bring a unique perspective and add value to classroom discussions. The fashion industry is truly a global business and LIM College's MBA program prepares its students to understand the increasingly international fashion business.

The internship is a very important part of the MBA and MPS programs. This is a chance to get a unique experience in a top fashion company. We currently have a Braziilian MBA student who is interning at Versace. We had two MBA students from Thailand complete their internships at Gucci.  The possibilities for work experience in the fashion industry in New York are very good. Our MBA students have also interned at Chanel, Givenchy, Emilio Pucci, Giorgio Armani, Tommy Hilfiger, Prada...the list could go on and on!

Our MBA student from China, Li Xiong, started the MBA program in March of 2012. She is now beginning the search for her internship experience. She is currently looking into a possible opportunity with luxury brand Lanvin. She has consulted with our career counselor on her best options. Asking Li about her experience in the MBA program, she replied, "I love it. I am interviewing and hoping to work with a brand that I have always admired! The career counselor Nancianne has been very helpful, and so has our school's job database, Symplicity! I did have interviews with a few companies, such as Derek Lam, Elie Tahari, a fashion magazine, and a PR company. Now the Lanvin interview opportunity makes me so thrilled and I can’t wait for it! My fingers are crossed, wish me good luck !"

Studying in New York presents so many opportunities in the fashion business. That's why LIM College is in the ideal place to help you develop the fashion career you want. Aside from the professional opportunities, there's nothing like life in New York City!
