Finnish fashion education among world’s best
Aalto University’s undergraduate programme in fashion has been ranked the world’s fifth best in Business of Fashion’s annual Global Fashion School Rankings.
The aim of the ranking is to provide an objective evaluation of the world’s best undergraduate and graduate fashion programmes.
Best in both categories was Central Saint Martins, based in London.
The results were based on data gathered from students and professionals, utilising three major indicators of quality: global influence, learning experience and long-term value.
Business of Fashion’s analysis shows that employability is a primary concern for the students.
“What is most important, our graduates find a job well, since it is not that easy these days in the fashion industry,” says professor Pirjo Hirvonen. “In our programme we put emphasis on close ties with the industry, excellent technological resources and ensuring that our students gain multidisciplinary skills.”
