This program is designed to enhance the student’s academic, personal, and cultural learning through the study abroad experience. Students will attend 20 hours of classroom instruction at partner institution, Polimoda (Florence, IT) where they will earn a Certificate of attendance in the Luxury Management Short Course. In addition, as an iconic fashion and culinary region, Florence Italy will provide Retailing and HRTM students in particular with a unique opportunity to observe and experience key Italian retailing/designer and hospitality venues and services, as well as important museums, markets, and related businesses which will reinforce and enrich their academic experience. By learning about fashion, food, and other luxury products and services simultaneously, our students will appreciate the uniqueness of international markets and be better prepared as professionals in their respective fields. This program is an ongoing collaboration between the College of HRSM and Polimoda, with annual junkets.
