The objective is to accompany the student to the progressive knowledge of the industry and the key processes that characterize the professional profiles involved in the brand management.Lectures are organized into modules based on the presence of teachers from different areas that can transmit a complete picture of the structure and functioning mechanism of the industry. They include a part of theoretical framework and a large space devoted to exercises, with the aim of transferring methods, techniques and concrete working tools.
Sustainability is one of the main pillars of the strategy of the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, a pioneering association in the dissemination of the values of sustainability and social responsibility in luxury fashion, as well as an international reference point, which since 2011 has established a Sustainability Commission to support member companies in achieving the highest sustainability standards.
The Master, therefore, has the objective of training a professional figure with a strong knowledge of environmental, economic, social and productive sustainability that will characterize the luxury fashion sector.
A manager capable of dealing with the environmental aspects of the company both upstream and downstream of the process so that it can help develop an awareness of the need to operate with greater responsibility and attention to the surrounding environment.
The professional figures trained are therefore junior profiles able to guide the creation and management of a product-service / system by operating in accordance with the Design, Marketing and Production figures present in the company as well as being able to support the CSR manager in the activities related to the actions pursued with a view to corporate sustainability.
Since it is a highly contemporary and articulated area, in agreement between MFI and the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, the potential of the profile will be developed through a Faculty made up of teachers, professionals, and experts operating in the Textile-Clothing, Fashion sector and Luxury as well as a selection process of the participants that privileges the origin from different backgrounds; a classroom of students from different backgrounds recreates the transversal skills and favors the conditions for the development of skills and design skills typical of company teams.
