Is this a FIT? The College Sage recently visited a unique academic offering by checking out the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in the vibrant Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan.
FIT started out in the 1940s with humble beginnings as a training school for the tailoring industry but with steady growth now occupies an entire city block and has an enrollment of over 10,000 students. Some unique majors available are: Fashion Business Management, Visual Presentation and Exhibit Design, Art History and Museum Profession, and Toy Design.
FIT is a public institution and a member of the State University of New York (SUNY) system and holds an international reputation for excellence in fashion design and business. Creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship are definitely standards on which the academic programs are based. Over half of the students are majoring in the School of Business and Technology, and the focus of FIT is summed up in their slogan: “Where Creativity Gets Down to Business”.
The College Sage is especially excited about the program started this year at the Incheon Global Campus in Songdo, Korea. FIT students can launch their degrees in Fashion Design and Fashion Business Management at the state-of-the art campus of SUNY Korea in Northeast Asia’s booming economic hub. This campus joins the other FIT locations in Florence and Milan, enhancing their global reach and reputation.
