What is Apparel Entrepreneurship?
The Apparel Entrepreneurship prepares students for work in the Apparel industry—a multi-billion dollar industry. By focusing on apparel design with an entrepreneurship core, students are prepared to be successful upon graduating.
Why Apparel Entrepreneurship?
This degree pairs apparel design and construction courses with entrepreneurship courses. This prepares students to work in the fashion industry or to develop their own apparel-based small entrepreneurial business either from the home, online, or in the start-up business arena. Apparel Design and Construction students will also complete an industry internship.
