1. Study in three fashion hot spots: Antwerp, Milan and Sao Paolo
Antwerp Management School in Antwerp
In the eighties a group of Belgian fashion designers graduated at the Koninklijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten van Antwerpen and became world famous. This group was called “the Antwerp Six”. Ever since, the fashion academy of Antwerp is one of the most influential fashion academies in the world and Antwerp became an important international fashion capital. New trends and designers are endlessly evolving in this creative fashion city. Antwerp has developed its own distinctive fashion identity, made by independent designers.
For 60 years AMS has been providing high quality management training and research which has given a powerful impulse to economic and social activities in Belgium and far beyond. The AACSB and NVAO accreditations awarded to AMS clearly demonstrate AMS' permanent attention to quality education. AMS is also listed in the Financial Times Rankings and the School takes into account the principles for responsible management education as presented by PRME.
"Belgium is a small country, but it is bursting with talent. The Belgian fashion world is intimidating for someone like me, together with the Antwerp Six, it made history. It’s why I opened one of my first international boutiques in Antwerp."
— Diane Von Furstenberg
