By launching their new online platform BoF Education, businessoffashion.com also unveiled the BoF Global Fashion School Rankings of the top 21 undergraduate and 10 graduate fashion programmes around the world. The rankings (updated for 2015) are based on rigorous analysis:
“The ranking is based on a rigorous methodology incorporating 60 different data points gathered directly from a shortlist of 24 top fashion institutions, surveys completed by 4,032 students and recent alumni, feedback from 88 HR professionals and global fashion influencers and our own BoF analysis of 21 undergraduate and 10 graduate programmes around the world.”
Each programme was evaluated on three key dimensions: Global Influence, Learning Experience and Long-term Value. While the last decade saw a growing popularity of fashion design studies and the rise of many famous fashion schools striving for supremacy in the field, BoF articles & research concerning different aspects of fashion education related to the streams in the industry become truly relevant.
