What You’ll Learn


At the undergraduate level, you can study fashion merchandising, visual merchandising, marketing, management, or international business along with liberal arts and general business courses. Whichever major you choose, you’ll benefit from focused coursework and in-depth studies in fashion, and develop the analytical and communication skills you’ll need to succeed.

While you’re working toward your degree, you’ll be gaining extensive experience through LIM College’s network of industry contacts and faculty, who are drawn from – and active in – the fashion industry. In addition, LIM College offers a wide array internships, field trips, and guest lecturers.

Requirements:

  • Both the BBA and BPS degrees require a minimum of 126/127 credits (the BBA in Visual Merchandising requires 129/130 credits) and a 2.00 minimum grade point average. Other minimum requirements: 35 credits in the liberal arts, 79-83 credits in professional and elective classes, and 10 credits of internship experience. All students must complete the final 33 credits (in addition to the Senior Semester) at LIM College.
  • Thirty-five credits in liberal arts are required for BBA and BPS degrees. College Algebra, Statistics, and Finance are not required for the BPS degree.
  • The BS in International Business requires 127 credits and a 2.00 minimum grade point average.  Other minimum requirements: 66 credits in the liberal arts, 51 credits in professional and elective classes, and 10 credits of internship experience.  All students must complete the final 33 credits (in addition to the Senior Semester) at LIM College.
  • LIM’s internships give you the experiences, challenges, and skills that take you from the academic world to the career world. In both the freshman and sophomore years, every LIM College student completes a 150-hour internship. Students transferring to LIM College in the second semester of the sophomore year or in the junior year complete their internships on a part-time basis throughout the semester. Upon completion, both a written and an oral report must be presented.
  • During the Senior Semester, students bring together everything they’ve learned during their LIM College education. The experience includes a semester-long, full-time internship in a field related to the student’s career goals. Participants will identify learning objectives then demonstrate them in a journal, a group project, and an oral presentation.
