If you have a flair for fashion and a mind for business, you are uniquely suited to a career in the fashion and textiles industry. You will study design, distribution and retail, and the theory and practice of visual merchandising.
RMIT’s Bachelor of Fashion (Merchandise Management) equips you with the skills and fashion knowledge to plan, develop and execute marketing and merchandising campaigns.
A highlight of the program is our Flagship Internship, where you will experience working within Vietnam's expanding fashion industry – this will help you gain hands-on experience in fashion merchandising, planning and buying, as well as a deeper understanding of consumer demand for apparel.
As part of your major project studies, you will undertake industry research and develop commercial industry briefs. You will attend lectures and forums by industry professionals, and connect with key industry figures through events and special public lectures.
RMIT graduates promote, customise and apply global trends in the local market - they also expand local brands to an international level. Job opportunities are exciting and varied, including:
- Brand management
- Fashion marketing and promotions
- International trade
- Range coordination
- Retail operations
- Outsourcing (production)
- Product development
- Supply chain management
- Trends analysis.
- Teaching and learning in this degree is very practical, providing you with constant hands-on experience. Your experience is structured, so that you begin in a safe, low-risk environment where you can learn essential skills, and progress to an internship in a real business within Vietnam's expanding fashion industry.
- You'll be assessed in a variety of ways to ensure that you can demonstrate your skills across the range of areas required for a fashion merchandiser. Expect a combination of examinations, assignments, presentations and project work. Assessment may be both individual, or conducted in groups.
