This year’s freshmen class has a new program to choose from, the BBA Honors in Apparel Management and Merchandising degree.
The fashion and apparel industry needs bright talented executives to guide the technological revolution rapidly taking place with this billion-dollar industry. Skilled managers are required to deal with increasingly complex textile products and manufacturing techniques; tasks such as planning product lines months before they appear in the stores are the order of the day. Many people Sell clothes that they no longer use. More experts are needed who would refurbish old clothes and turn them into a brand of their own.
Our BBA Honors in Apparel Management and Merchandising program is a combination of business and apparel courses. This program has been created to encompass all important elements of a successful apparel manager: procurement, quality, production, product development, marketing, management, merchandising, finance, human resource management and sales.
With a BBA in Textile Management added two years ago (2001), and a BBA in Textile Design four years ago (1999), TIP has a growing portfolio of degrees on offer. TIP started in 1993 with a lone BBA in Textile Science.
TIP this year also added a Masters of Science in Textile Chemistry.
Qualified and experienced faculty in Textile Chemistry, Polymer Sciences and Chemistry, have structured a program that is analytical and challenging, yet convenient enough for both full-time and part-time candidates.
