You have the choice of either opting for a single summer school, held in Barcelona, or a joint course spread across both our Toulouse and Barcelona campuses.
The summer school is centred around two of Barcelona’s key industries: fashion and entrepreneurship & Innovation. The reasons for this are clear, as not only is the city famed for its fashion and style; it also hosts several leading global brands. In addition, it was also declared European Capital of Innovation in 2015.
Students need to take 2 compulsory academic modules, each worth a total of 6 ECTS credits:
Module 1: Fashion & Luxury Goods
With a focus on the management and marketing of this dynamic and constantly changing sector, this module provides an insight into brand management, corporate image and ensuring long term profitability in the areas of fashion and luxury goods.
We also offer a joint, 6-week course, combining the modules offered at both the TBS Toulouse (France) and Barcelona (Spain) campuses, enabling you to experience life in both cities whilst earning up to 24 internationally recognized ECTS credits.
