A new Master’s Course in Fashion Retail Management, in partnership with Gucci at Polimoda

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Talented students will be equipped to take up managerial roles in the retail business of international luxury brands and who better to educate them then Gucci? Both Polimoda and Gucci share Florentine origins as well as a desire to have international leadership. Top managers from Gucci will support the program by giving presentations in areas such as retail management, finance, merchandising, visuals, marketing and communications and store operation.

The course is set to start in April 2018. This is a 9 month course and will give students access to international guest lectures and a variety of field trips to the Gucci organisation.
