Tori Raff and Jackie Rafferty on the Italy study abroad

This new travel study program to Italy is developed to provide a unique learning opportunity centered on fashion business in major Italian cities

known for fashion industry and global brands. The majority of this program will take place in Florence and Milan, the two most important cities known for Italian heritage and birthplace for major fashion brands for worldwide consumers. Students will take one three-credit course (FASH321: Global Brand Management & Marketing) during a three-week long program that will provide in and out-of-classroom learning experiences enhanced by rich historical and cultural environments. Students will experience Italian cuisine and cultures such as language, design, architect, and street styles of fashion. Classroom learning will be accompanied by local site visits and industry tours to major Italian companies and brands.

This course offered on this program explores the significance of brand management for international fashion companies. It introduces the essential elements of branding, major activities of brand management and marketing with a focus on fashion products. Global fashion brand strategies for international consumers, including luxury brands, are examined in relation to macro and micro environmental factors, and other cultural experiences such as food, design, architect, and street styles of fashion.
