The courses have a strong foundation in current research in textile management, focusing on sustainability and digitalization in the textile value chain, fashion management, as well as business strategy and retail. The programme also contains an introductory course in the well-equipped textile laboratories, which gives you a good insight into textile as a material as well as textile and apparel production at large.
