The Missouri State fashion programs, housed within the College of Business, have been ranked both regionally and nationally for a second consecutive year by Fashion-Schools.org.
“We are honored to be recognized for providing exceptional fashion design and fashion merchandising education for a second year. Our faculty, staff and leadership in these programs go above and beyond for our students each day,” states Dr. Stephanie Bryant, Dean of the College of Business.
The Fashion Merchandising program was ranked eleventh on the list for the Top 20 Fashion Merchandising Schools in the Midwest region and also listed among the Top 75 Fashion Merchandising Schools in the U.S. Similar rankings were also awarded to our Fashion Design program. The Design program was ranked sixteenth on the list for the Top 20 Fashion Design Schools in the Midwest region and also listed among the Top 75 Fashion Design Schools in the U.S.
“The inspiration for our rankings comes from the emails we receive nearly every day from young people or their parents inquiring about the “best” school to attend for fashion design, merchandising and related fields. Often these students aren’t familiar with great fashion programs -like Missouri State- available in their very own state or region of the country. Missouri State is a fine example of a good, affordable fashion program of which students may not be aware,” states Brad Prescott founder of Fashion-Schools.org.
Ranking criteria for these selections was based on: academic reputation, admission selectivity, depth and breadth of the program and faculty, value as it relates to tuition and indebtedness, and geographic location.
