Teaching methods and evaluation process
MAFED requires a full-time commitment.
The class schedule is as follows:
- Three morning sessions (8:30am - 10:00am; 10:15am – 11:45am; 12:00 noon – 1:30pm)
- Eventually, one afternoon session (2:30pm – 4:00pm)
The majority of teaching consists of structured lectures, often supported by additional seminars. The pedagogical style will be a hybrid of lectures, exercises, and guest speaker sessions. Participants will be provided with the practical tools needed to analyze specific problems and take concrete decisions in the fashion and design sectors. The lecture style tends to be participatory and lectures frequently incorporate case analysis and discussions, often involving the protagonists from real business. There are also required group work sessions, field investigations and individual research.
Grades are based on assignments completed during the course and/or examinations at the end of the same course. In order to qualify for the Master in Fashion, Experience and Design Management, students must successfully complete all courses and program activities, including general management courses, major courses, fashion and design management courses, seminars and the field project.
