Admissions Profile

The students of the Executive Master in Fashion Business Administration (FBA) must have the capacity of learning and the sufficient intellectual restlessness to acquire knowledge and tools that help them carry out administrative tasks in the fashion industry.

To that end, they must have a clear interest in developing skills such as:

  • Personal skills (proactivity, initiative, tenacity, personal management, time management, information management, stress management, personal improvement, self-criticism, self-knowledge, learning, self-government, balance, integrity, etc.).

Academic access requirements

Students, Spanish or foreigners, must accredit the legal requirements of access provided in article 16 of Royal Decree 1393/2007.

To access an official Master’s programs, it is necessary to hold an official Spanish university degree or of another university. It has to be issued by an education institution of the European Higher Education Area that authorizes the issuer to access a Master’s degree.

Likewise, graduates from educational systems outside the European Higher Education Area can access without the need for homologation of their degree. ISEM will verify that they accredit a level of training equivalent to the corresponding official Spanish university degrees, which entitle them to access postgraduate courses.

As an academic requirement for access, English proficiency is also required.

Professional access requirements

The FBA is focused on graduates with professional experience, interested in the business dimension of the fashion sector.

The fundamental objective of the admission process is to value students who stand out for their maturity, academic curriculum, professional trajectory and interpersonal skills. This will allow a selection of candidates that contribute to mutual enrichment and to the maximum use of the program.

Admission criteria

  • Have a bachelor’s degree.
  •  Professional experience.
  •  English proficiency

Given the limited number of slots, we recommend that you start the admission process with time.
