Industry Advisory Board

This unique program was developed through extensive consultation with many of the leading corporations in the beauty industry. The program's Industry Advisory Board is a cross-section of senior executives from multinational corporations, expert consultants in product development and marketing, respected journalists, national retailers, heads of industry associations, and members of the FIT community.

Together with a cross-disciplinary faculty selected from throughout the college and industry experts who teach as adjunct instructors in the program, the courses and overall program give young professionals a breadth of knowledge and leadership training to prepare them for positions of senior responsibility in the beauty industry.
