Research enlightens fashion industry executives

In the heart of midtown Manhattan, on one of the fashion industry’s famous avenues, the Rutgers Center for Business of Fashion, led by finance and economics professor Tavy Ronen, held its first annual International Industry and Research Conference.

Industry speakers and participants included CFOs from Gucci, Alexander Wang, Saint Laurent and Kiton. Topics, ranging from law, supply chain, finance, accounting and management to digital marketing and sustainability, were all focused specifically on the fashion industry. Professors from Milan, Manchester and Sydney led some of the research discussions.

Rutgers Business School offers a Master of Science in Business of Fashion as well as a minor/concentration for undergraduates interested in working in the fashion and luxury industries.
