Sustainability in Fashion and Creative Industries (M.A.)

Deve­lo­ping sustain­able design and manage­ment stra­te­gies in the crea­tive indus­tries – the Sustai­na­bi­lity in Fashion and Crea­tive Indus­tries Master's pro­gram seeks to edu­cate experts and mana­gers who engage in sha­ping the widespread glo­bal change toward sustai­na­bi­lity. This future-ori­en­ted Mas­ter of Arts is aimed at desi­gners, mana­gers or entre­pre­neurs, who want to ope­rate in an eco­no­mi­c­ally effec­tive and at the same time respon­si­ble way.

 

With a very inter­di­sci­pli­nary and hands-on struc­ture the Master´s pro­gram covers the fol­lo­wing areas of spe­cia­li­za­tion: "Sustain­able Design Stra­te­gies", "Sustain­able Pro­duc­tion" and „Sustain­able Busi­ness". You will explore sustain­able design deve­lop­ments and trends, inno­va­tive mate­ri­als, tech­no­lo­gies of pro­duc­tion and mar­ke­ting instru­ments, in order to arrange value-added chains in an eco­lo­gi­cal and social man­ner. You will look into the func­tio­n­ing of eco­sys­tems, the ori­gin of resour­ces and fair labor con­di­ti­ons. Like­wise you will gain deeper know­ledge of sustain­able life­style, busi­ness ethics and trans­pa­rent cor­po­rate com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons.

 

Become a dri­ving force for sustain­able inno­va­tions! The Mas­ter study pro­gram Sustai­na­bi­lity in Fashion and Crea­tive Indus­tries allows you to acquire ana­ly­ti­cal, social and crea­tive skills nee­ded to imple­ment sustain­able design con­cepts and novel busi­ness models. Work­shops, excur­si­ons and prac­tical pro­jects with com­pa­nies in the crea­tive indus­tries are an inte­gral part of the mas­ter stu­dies. You will work clo­sely with our pro­fes­sors and indus­try experts
