For the second consecutive year, a team of four students in the Jay and Patty Baker School of Business, representing the United States, has won the Retail Futures Challenge, an international competition that takes place at the annual World Retail Congress. The FIT team, who traveled to Paris for the competition, bested teams from Hong Kong, London, Tokyo, and Marche, Italy, on September 30, with their concept for the Samsung Life Store ó "The Smart Apartment."
A panel of 14 top fashion industry executives selected Bita and Rouzita
Vahhabaghai, sisters and owners of ITA Collection, to receive $25,000 to
implement the new business plan they presented at the capstone event of
Design Entrepreneurs NYC (DENYC).
With a high school diploma or a General Equivalency Diploma (GED), you can apply to any of FITís associate degree programs. Some students with credits or a degree from another college may be eligible to apply directly to a bachelor's degree program.
Whether you are a beginner or professional, our programs provide vital skills for career changers, executives, entrepreneurs, and small-business owners, and industry groups, and serious hobbyists, in areas such as fashion business, design, computer technology, and marketing.
