Course Title

LIU in London – Global Fashion Consulting Project

Collaboration Overview

As part of the Fashion Program at Long Island University, a private university in New York, a group of top business students will be participating in a Global Fashion Consulting Project this Spring. This initiative allows them to travel to a fashion capital of the world and lend their expertise and knowledge to a fashion brand that is interested in a fresh look at their current business. 

Last year, the students had the honor of working on a Gen Z Retail Strategy for the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum in Florence (Results Linked). This year, the program is headed to London! 

We are currently searching for a London-based fashion company interested in providing a business challenge for this talented group of students to work on. They, along with their Faculty Program Director, will be in London March 6th-13th. They plan to virtually launch the project at the end of January and use the lead time until their trip to conduct the necessary research, conceptualize a plan, and prepare a final presentation. 

The experience is geared to provide students with real-world experience as they produce meaningful outcomes for your company using their unique skills and global perspective. 

There is no fee for this engagement; the trip is paid for in full by the school. The students are not permitted to receive compensation for their work since they’re full-time enrolled students receiving course credit to participate.
