“We are honored to be recognized for providing exceptional fashion design education for a third 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 Design program was ranked among the Top 50 Fashion Design Schools and Colleges in the US at number 40 when compared to other public and private universities and colleges. The Design program was also ranked twentieth among public universities and colleges and tenth overall in the Midwest region.
“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 included: academic reputation, admission selectivity, depth and breadth of the program and faculty, value as it relates to tuition and indebtedness, and geographic location. Publically available information and school surveys were used to gather the data. For more information visit http://www.fashion-schools.org/
