The course ends with an internship in a company of 3 to 6 months.
Teaching is in French and is given by the permanent and associate teaching staff at IFM, in addition to contributions from high-level professionals at every stage of the program.
Live case studies with company participation and creative workshops that combine marketing and creative approaches are proposed throughout the year.
A number of workshops bring together students from the Postgraduate Program, Design & Luxury Management with students from the Fashion Design Postgraduate Program.
