You have an eye for style and a head for business. We have a two-year diploma program that nurtures both.

In our hands-on program, you’ll learn practical skills in business, fashion, communication and marketing, while making industry connections that will launch your career. And since we only accept 30 students per year, you’ll get the mentorship you need to succeed. The Fashion Marketing Diploma is a rigorous full time 2-year program. However, you can adjust your elective schedules, so you can finish the program while working. Please consult with the program coordinator and assistant. 

At the completion of the program, you’ll be ready for a career in the fashion industry in:

  • Buying
  • Merchandising
  • Branding
  • Forecasting
  • Styling and consulting
  • Public relations
  • Event planning
  • Communications
  • Retail sales
  • Visual merchandising
  • Management

After graduation, you can even choose to take your career further by applying to ladder up into one of one of KPU’s Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree programs. You may also want to look into another faculty of interest. 

With the Fashion Marketing Diploma, you don’t have to choose between a program that ignites your creativity and a business program that is practical. Start your career by applying now or learning more about the program.

"The Fashion Marketing program provided me with both the theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience to confidently pursue a career in the fashion industry. Nurturing my individual aspirations, the instructors drew from their own industry backgrounds to provide a cohesive understanding of fashion and marketing functions — from market research, to textile sciences and visual merchandising. Armed with this knowledge and a burgeoning network of industry contacts, I could finally make the leap to actualizing my vision, launching my own apparel brand and web store."
