Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) is to double the number of fashion-related courses at its London campus with the launch of its British School of Fashion.
The postgraduate school, which opens on September 11, will be based at GCU London’s satellite campus on Fashion Street, Spitalfields.
The university already offers two fashion MBAs, in International Fashion Marketing and Luxury Brand Marketing, but in a move to highlight the importance of its fashion arm it will debut MAs in Luxury Retailing and Brand Management. The courses will last between one and two years, with place numbers depending on demand.
Christopher Moore, assistant vice-principal of GCU and the first director of the British School of Fashion, said: “Now is the time for us to recognise the work we do within the business of fashion.”
GCU is about to open a campus in New York’s SoHo, Moore added.
