What does a BA (Hons) Fashion Buying & Merchandising Qualify You to do?

The BA (Hons) in Fashion Buying & Merchandising degree from Portobello Institute is purposefully designed to ensure students who enrol in the course are not bereft of career options upon completion of the degree.

This full-time BA (Hons) in Fashion Buying and Merchandising degree awarded by London Metropolitan University qualifies you to work within the business environment of the global fashion industry, launching your career as a fashion buyer and merchandiser.

While fashion trends change from season to season the fundamental role of the fashion buyer and fashion merchandiser remains the same. As a fashion buyer, you will play an integral role within the infrastructure of the retail team, tracking and analysing seasonal trends, ensuring production costs are kept within budget and most importantly, ensuring profit and growth for the company. This course covers the key modules for those interested in a career in fashion buying and merchandising.

However, fashion merchandising and buying are not the only two paths that you can go down after graduation. Other areas of study include sustainability, trend research, product development, supply chain management and trading, fashion marketing, ethics, the leadership of people and organisations and more. The future of the fashion business is a significant focus.

Choose the course for the career you want and follow your passion in the world of fashion.
