Best Fashion Schools In The World For 2023
Detailed findings & methodology: CEOWORLD magazine surveyed 185,000 fashion executives, graduates, global fashion influencers, industry professionals, fashion school academics, employers, and recruiters in 200 territories between November 15, 2022, and February 22, 2023. Ten percent of the interviews were conducted by telephone, 82% online, and 8% by post or face-to-face. All quantitative interviews were conducted confidentially without relying on institutions’ data submissions.
CEOWORLD magazine Research, our global center of excellence for primary research and evidence-based consulting services, undertook the study. We collected information and statistics from publicly available sources, research, and survey to establish our list. Participants were asked to rate institutions on a scale of 1 “marginal” to 100 “outstanding” or “don’t know.” The CEOWORLD magazine carried out the 2023 Global Fashion Schools survey – the website for corporate executives, business leaders, and high-net-worth individuals.
The rankings are based on seven major metrics of quality and reputation. The overall Score (100%) is the sum of:
1. Perceived Global Brands Influence (20%)
2. Recruiters Responses (20%)
3. Employers Feedback (10%)
4. Job Placement Rate (10%)
5. Admission Eligibility (10%)
6. Specialization (10%)
7. Academic Reputation (20%)
However, this is by no means a comprehensive list;. At the same time, the institutions above are the CEOWORLD magazine’s “best fashion schools in the world for 2023,” there may be many other fashion schools that offer excellent programs. This ranking should not be viewed as the most essential aspect when choosing a fashion school and are merely one element to consider.
The margin of sampling error for the total sample of 185,000 respondents is plus or minus 1.2 percentage points. In addition to sampling error, one should bear in mind that, as in all survey research, there are possible sources of error—such as coverage, nonresponse, and measurement error——that could affect the results.
Not all figures add up to 100% due to rounding percentages and excluding ‘neither/nor’ and ‘don’t know’ responses from the exhibit. Unless otherwise stated, the base for global figures is 185,000 (global respondents). All answers are confidential, allowing survey participants to share their perspectives in a respectful, truthful, unbiased, and collegial setting.
