    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The class itself was very helpful and enlightening but the professor was lackluster at best.

    Course highlights:

    My highlights within this course were when the professor let us take full reign of our assignments, as it allowed us to really explore how much potential we has and how well we could work with others in our major at school.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    YOU HAVE TO READ THE BOOK. Even if you don't read the chapters, at least read the summaries in the back. Trust me, once the class has gone on about why "The EU will destory the economy" for 25 minutes, you'll be glad you actually read the material.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Fashion Business Practices is a great introduction to the business world of our industry. The class is very informative and filled with several projects. I enjoyed doing projects rather than constant homework and difficult exams. A few of our projects were on: specific trade associations, fashion throughout the decades, specific industries (ex: leather accessories, lingerie) and department retail stores. We were encouraged to reach out to people working within the industry for further insight you cannot find on a website or database. Overall it was a great class, I only wish we were about to work in several different groups rather than working with the same group for projects the entire semester.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a lot of knowledge in Fashion Business Practices. I learned about different fashion styles, businesses, and inspirations that have influenced fashion to be what it is today. I learned that trade associations are the glue to every industry and trade shows are just as important. My favorite part of the class was learning about the different decades of fashion, starting in the 1800s all the way to 1990. It is so interesting to see how economic, social, and political events have such a large influence on what we wear. Great class, very informative, highly recommended.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I highly advice taking this course. Be prepared to work with a group for projects a lot. I think we had a total of 6 projects, 4 group and 2 independent. The exams are open book and note which is very helpful because they each are on a total of 10 chapters. Print out the power points for exams!!!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class teaches you the basics about a business. What you learn is crucial knowledge, even though the subject matter is slightly boring

    Course highlights:

    You learn a lot about what goes into a business. Walking away, you know so much about how to form, what type, and who runs each kind of business. This is all valuable information that you'll need heading into the industry

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read your text book. Each chapter has something important for you to learn. Even if you think it's common knowledge, read and learn what the book has to say, because there is something in there you haven't seen before. Also, listen to your teachers. They have the best information, as they have worked in this industry before
