Company Training Options

Do your employees or trade members need training that is pertinent to the demand of today's marketplace and meets specific needs of professionals and companies in fashion and it's related businesses? Let industry leaders, successful FIT grads and professional faculty help you strengthen your business. Programs are relevant, topical and available throughout the year. 

Company training options include: 

  • Hot Topics to Go: Professional Studies regularly schedules private sections of our highly regarded Hot Topics seminar classes for fashion-related companies. These can be held on-campus or on-site.
  • Thinklab: Private roundtable sessions are available for company leaders to interact with a panel of industry experts chosen to complement specific business interests. In-depth discussions revolve around strategies applicable to problem solving. Sessions can be arranged on-site or on FIT's campus by appointment.
  • Online Training: Hot Topics programs and professional training services can also be arranged with FIT faculty in conjunction with the SUNY Learning Network. 
  • Customized Training: If you don't see a subject or topic you need on the college's website we'd still like to hear from you. Programming designed to your specifications is also available. 

How do you get started?

Review the existing Hot Topics courses. These open-to-the-public programs take place on-campus throughout the year and often form the basis for private training, or the undergraduate courses can also be a starting point for pinpointing training topics.
