Humber’s Fashion Management graduate certificate program prepares you to work in the dynamic fashion industry and focuses on the management, marketing, and sales of fashion apparel and accessories. Courses cover new product development and branding, fashion buying and retailing, multi-channel commerce, international marketing and product management, and entrepreneurship. Visual merchandising skills combined with colour theory skills and trend forecasting give this program a dynamic, hands-on approach to the business side of fashion.

Students in the program can choose between fashion promotions or fashion sustainability profile. The promotions profile covers the rapidly growing promotions side of fashion including courses in integrated marketing communication and social media brand management. Students will learn how to leverage and promote a brand through social media, personal blogs, Instagram, Twitter, online selling and personal website development.

The sustainable fashion profile provides students with opportunities to learn about important aspects of fashion sustainability such as ethics, finance and supply chain. Students apply aquired knowledge and hone consulting skills in real world cases and scenarios.  There is a growing demand for industry professionals with knowledge of sustainable solutions and innovation. Students graduate from the program prepared with tools to lead the industry to a lasting sustainable fashion change.
