Build a Solid Career in a Fast-Moving Business World

The program’s structure is highly interdisciplinary. The strong partnership between SDA Bocconi and the business community is to ensure a perfect fusion of art, craftsmanship, and science, which is the essence of fashion and design.

 

The MAFED program offers you general management courses and specialized courses in fashion, design, and experience management, field projects, and advanced seminars. If you do not have a business background, you can attend preliminary courses before the start of the program. At the end of the program you will have a solid understanding of business planning, marketing, and control tools, and you will be able to apply advanced product, brand, and retail management techniques in a fast-moving and global business environment.

Study Tours

Study tours are the perfect occasion to deepen in field what it is learned in class. The MAFED has a rich proposal of study tours, they're not mandatory and are not included in the fee of the Master. Most study tours are intended for the whole class, but the latest ones of New York and Italian Grand Tour are specifically dedicated to the participants of the tracks in Go-To-Market in a Fashion and Design Global Landscape and in Experience & Hospitality.

All year

FIELD PROJECTS

To tell whether learning is being effective, it is always necessary to test it in the field. In-company group projects have this function and cover several corporate aspects and functions (brand positioning, pricing, entry into new markets, etc.).
