After the course

We specifically train our students up for commercial management positions within the fashion industry. 80% of TMO students have found suitable employment within 3 months of graduating (and more than 10% continue with their studies). We are successful in this because approximately 90% of our graduates work in a commercial profession within this industry. Our focused approach, which is closely aligned with professional practices, gives our students more opportunities within the employment market and allows them to find a suitable position. Armed with the recognised title of Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in Fashion, our students find work in commercial management positions in The Netherlands and abroad. Also outside of the fashion industry, as a result of their unique combination of business knowledge, the ability to deal with changes and manage experiences and emotions. Our students have excellent employment perspectives because of our relationship with the business community and the network which has been built up during the course.
