What is important for your students to take away from your classes?
“It’s important that students take away a realistic understanding of the business side of our ever-changing Fashion Industry. It is a tough but extremely rewarding and exciting business, and I want our Lasell students to be truly prepared to succeed. Connecting the classroom with hands on opportunities within the industry make the courses we teach both relevant and current from day 1 through graduation.”
