Fashion and Lifestyle Executive

The textile and fashion industry has been revolutionized in the last few decades. New types of business, purchasing and production models have emerged in the sector, and companies need to invest more in brand development. There is a continuous need to develop business and management skills.

Aalto EE and the Finnish Textile & Fashion (Suomen Tekstiili & Muoti, central organization for textile, clothing and fashion companies in Finland) have jointly designed a training program that enables fashion and textile firms to develop their leadership skills in strategy, business innovation and management.

The program provides companies with a strong platform for developing their businesses and the leadership skills of participating executives, through a more competitive business model and better management. If more than one person participates from the same company, the benefits can be multiplied by sparring on the ideas gained and putting them into practice during the program.

The program is partly provided in Finnish and partly in English.
