Milano Fashion Institute Masters are born from a specific training need for new professional profiles capable of grasping the transformations in the fashion and lifestyle sector to trigger innovation in companies in terms of the organization of creative, managerial, commercial and communication processes. The profiles coming out of the five Masters are the result of an elaboration that follows years of research and training in the field of fashion of the most important Milanese universities of excellence, each oriented to different and crucial aspects: management, design, communication, lifestyle and sustainability.
Within the training offer, there are two areas of higher education, aimed at different professional paths:
_ Masters in Fashion Direction: these Masters form junior managerial profiles, of a 'hybrid' character, with multidisciplinary training, able to act proactively as 'intermediaries' between purely creative and purely managerial profiles. These broader-spectrum skills, which are often acquired in companies after years of experience, have resulted in five strategic areas within fashion companies, especially in the current revision and reorganization phase:
_The management and planning of the creative processes and of collection development: from the coding and understanding of the values and stylistic codes of the brand, to the ability of declination of these codes within the various product categories and product lines; to the planning of collections through merchandising planning, selecting and managing suppliers, and finally the organization and management of the processes of trade marketing and communication (Master in Fashion Direction: Brand & Product Management).
_The integrated management of creative and managerial processes related to distribution, in the different business models (brand designer or industrial groups integrated downstream in the direct retail; retail channels in partnership with brands and indipendent retailer, as franchising, shop in shop, corner, etc; retail chains, asdepartment stores, fast fashion retailers, mass retailers; small independent retailers, as individual shops or small local chains (Master in Fashion Direction: Brand & Business Management).
_The management and design of research strategies, communication strategies and the enhancement of cultural company heritage: from the qualitative and quantitative analysis of the consumption to the identification and interpretation of trends; from the linguistic innovation in corporate communications and media channels to the governance of the new digital communication formats and channels; from the enhancement of the cultural, material and relational heritage, to the management and design of social responsibility programs (Master in Fashion Direction: Brand & Communication Management).
_The management of the characteristic processes of companies operating in the Design, Cosmetics & Wellness and Events sectors: from the management of creative processes and portfolio development, to the planning of brand management activities, and marketing management, to the management of design projects, organization and execution of the realization and creative processes related to the events (Master in Fashion Direction: Brand & Lifestyle Management).
_The management of the product / service system and the production process with a view to sustainability in luxury fashion companies: from reporting and the block chain to the circular economy envisaged in the management area, to materials, finishes and innovative materials for a careful product that is not only to the environmental aspect but also social and economic. Regulations, laws and environmental impact assessment processes up to green commercial spaces and social communication processes (Master in Fashion Direction: Product Sustainability Management).
_ Master in Fashion Creation: for junior Designer profiles, of a 'hybrid' character, which differ from those formed by the Masters in Fashion Direction, with their ability to combine specific design skills on particular product categories of the fashion supply chain (from accessories, to footwear, sportswear, up to eyewear and jewelry), together with a knowledge of production processes. The strong product specialization is typically acquired after several years of work experience, and traditionally not trained within university courses. The Masters in Fashion Creation represent an "accelerator" of specialized skills, able to make profiles immediately operational in a business context.
International classes and the importance of the interaction between the various nationalities and cultures, for a better ability to manage the professional processes of the future.

The Master in Accessory Design was one of the most intense and formative experience of my life and gave me the opportunity to start my career in the right direction. As we say in Italy “ogni lasciata è persa”, which means “never miss an opportunity”. Now it is time for you to be brave and lay the base for your future. So, remember, do what makes you happy!
The experience at the Master in Accessory Design was great both from a human and a professional point of view. It was hard because we had tight schedules to develop complete projects but it was a great and very useful exercise if you want to work in the market. At the end of the workshops, even if you think it is impossible, you will complete the projects, and this is a great satisfaction! The best thing about the Master is that in very few months you can develop a very complete personal professional portfolio to present yourself to companies.
Through the Master in Accessory Design you can have contacts with different companies, dealing with various kinds of accessories. This is very important because you can view the entire market, understanding how everything works, how you can develop actual projects, from designing to prototypes constructing, having an overview of the different phases.
