British School of Fashion, MBA Luxury Brand Management - London

Our first steps in fashion date back to 1875 and to our founding colleges in Glasgow, Scotland. In that era our primary aim was to provide women with opportunities in design, textiles and retail, with a keen awareness of the economic, social and environmental needs of the time. British fashion has evolved to encompass so much more than just manufacturing and the education provided by the GCU British School of Fashion reflects those changes. For decades, GCU has contributed to the business of fashion through the creation of pioneering courses. We were the first UK Institution to offer an MSc in International Fashion Marketing in 2000, and are still one of only a few Universities worldwide to offer a dedicated MBA in Luxury Brand Management. The British School of Fashion intends to build upon the foundation provided by our strong heritage and fashion industry expertise through continued innovation of new programmes and investment and development of our academic faculty.

Our specialised fashion knowledge is generated through a unique and critical balance of leading edge industry practice and underpinned by the latest academic research. The British School of Fashion has a thriving community of researchers who support research across fashion business and collaborate with researchers in different academic areas at GCU’s Glasgow and London campuses. Highly aligned with the GCU mission of ‘for the common good’, our research is encompasses sustainability and is underpinned by the theme of ‘societal innovations’.

We work closely with colleagues at the Fair Fashion Center at our New York campus to ensure everything we do is informed by the latest sustainable fashion research. Based at Glasgow Caledonian New York College, the Fair Fashion Center is proving the business case for sustainability by turning global issues into industry opportunities. By embedding this in to our teaching, consultancy and research, our students and industry partners become responsible leaders who can turn sustainable practice in to profit.

Our staff are experts in their fields. Most have worked in the fashion and luxury industry and all regularly collaborate with businesses to ensure course content is relevant, future-proof and engaging. By studying at the British School of Fashion, you will have access to their industry led knowledge and contact with their professional networks through a series of guest lectures and field trips.
