What to Expect in Master Degree

Due to a lot of questions about the course I am currently enrolling in, I think this post would be benefit for those who are still looking for the right answer about Master Degree and if this course will be the best long-term career implementation. I mentioned about this further education in the previous post that experience is still one of the most crucial skills we need because not everybody needs this master degree, however, it also important to learn and step up to the next level of in depth knowledge about fashion industry. Therefore, I am gonna tell you everything about the module, as well as, what to expect in Masters level

I am studying MA:International Fashion Marketing Management because this course would be able to fulfill my career as a street fashion blogger in terms of online marketing, as well as, fashion business. Do not expect that masters level is about the lecture in class since the reality is more about 'research' and 'critical thinking' 

I attend the class only twice a week with no exam but %100 of project. So far, I have been studying Product Development, Organization (Financial Report), Promotion and Communication. It is quite intense tbh because it takes me only a year to accomplish, but I would recommend you guys who recently graduated from university to go out and work for a year or two before applying to this course (but for me I went out backpacking with my friends instead lol) because sometimes it can be difficult to think about the concrete picture of the organization, as well as, the process of the company. I have been working in this industry for 3-4 years so it is what I have been doing in everyday life. I love everything about online marketing and business, hence some of the courses I take can be very beneficial to adapt in my business. It sounds like undergrad program, but this MA level is more in-depth in terms of research and how to apply in reality. 

What I love the most? Promotion and Communication are fun for me. I love thinking and perceiving in both business owner's logic, and customers point of view. These two make me think about how to reach the consumers and make it success. 

I love it so far, but it does have a flaw in its path since I still confirm in my own words that 'experience is still more important' MA is just another level of understanding the process of fashion business in the whole new level, that's all. 

Outfit- Today I'm wearing the blazer sent from The Vintage Scene, one of the vintage stores I love. I used to be the person who wore only tank-top and skinny jeans all the time but I have to adapt myself and take The Equinox Fashion to the next level because I am not quite the same person as before. I am the founder/writer of this blogosphere, studying Master Degree and running the online accessories business called 'Hidden Treasure' So, I always seek for the items to boost up my normal outfit in order to look more professional. I love street fashion, but also love to mix&match and completely elevate the look to become more appropriate in some circumstances. I am still wearing jeans and this colourful crop top, however, I decided to put this blazer on because it matches with the look. 

I also love the products provided from The Vintage Scene on the website which can be found on ASOS Marketplace too. If you love 90s vibe, you will love the store like I do :)

Blazer- The Vintage Scene
Earrings- Hidden Treasure
Jeans- Uniqlo
