World's first Menswear Master's Degree program is coming Fall 2016

And to continue its striving to offer better quality and possibilities to its students, the University is going to start the world's first Menswear Master's Degree program the upcoming Fall season. It will offer a two-year studying dedicated entirely to the men's clothing. The program will be led by Ike Rust, who previously served as the Royal College of Arts head of menswear design.

It is so important that each of the students understands that the design process is fashion, and it is really important to tell the difference between converting something and actually creating something. And that is what we ask our students to do-to come up with ways of working with clothes that means something to them, and, ultimately, to the world', said Rust.
