The Juren Sullivan Program for Fashion Management offers students three different degree options for students to choose according to career interests. The fashion degrees are: Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Fashion Design; and a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Fashion Management with two tracks: Fashion Merchandising and Fashion Product Development.

Merchandising coursework program focuses on brand and sales management within the wholesale and retail sectors of the fashion industry. The senior year is an exciting year because merchandising students work side by side with product development majors to create original fashion brands and sales environments.


Most job qualifications for entry-level positions in fashion merchandising require applicants to have earned a bachelor’s degree in fashion merchandising with a minor in business. 

Career opportunities can be found with companies who sell men’s, women’s, and children’s apparel and accessories. Most graduates begin with retailers in store management. Buying offices prefer candidates who have a retailing background. Buying offices are located at the corporate headquarters of a retailer. Assistant buying positions are highly competitive; candidates are interviewed for their ability to work with others and are tested for sales analysis skills. 

Other types of entry-level positions are in visual merchandising, showroom management, merchandising representatives, and account managers. Entry-level sales support positions for fashion corporations can be found in sales, audit, loss prevention, human resource management, marketing, and special events.
