Our courses ranked among the best in the world.

Institut Français de la Mode has received the highest distinction (four "badges of excellence") for its Management and Design programs in the new assessment of top fashion schools in the world published today by The Business of Fashion.

For its fourth edition, The Business of Fashion decided to publish an alphabetical list of top schools at Undergraduate and Graduate level, distinguishing schools with badges of excellence corresponding to the four main assessment criteria: overall quality, global influence (reputation and selectivity), learning experience (student body, teaching, resources) and long-term value (careers, preparedness and alumni network).

Institut Français de la Mode obtains 4 badges (the maximum number possible) for its design programs (Undergraduate and Graduate levels) and management programs (Graduate level, and the only ones in the world to obtain 4 badges).

"This result highlights the remarkable work accomplished by our faculty, the close ties we have with companies in the sector, but above all the professional success of our graduates," says Dominique Jacomet, Dean of Institut Français de la Mode.

Institut Français de la Mode has been featured in all previous editions of the BoF ranking, ranking first in the world for its management programs and second for its design program in the last edition. This new achievement is very encouraging at a time when Institut Français de la Mode is undergoing a thorough review of its design curriculum and strengthening its interdisciplinary approach based on the 3 fundamental pillars of success in the fashion industry: design, management and craftsmanship.

"We are very pleased to see our design and management courses attain global recognition. This list reflects the deep ties we are forging with our students and the strong attachment of alumni to their school," concludes Sylvie Ebel, Deputy Director of Institut Français de la Mode.
