The Cox Review of Creativity in Business (2005), commissioned by the UK government, cites design as: "what links creativity and innovation, it shapes ideas to become practical and attractive propositions for users or customers."

If you are currently employed in or would like to develop a career in fashion design, the Fashion and the Creative Economy MA course is ideal. It will develop your creative skills while also giving you an overview of how to manage the industry effectively within the creative economy.

By the end of the course, you will be equipped with the leading-edge knowledge and practical skills needed to succeed in this area of the creative economy.
