FIT, in partnership with Allure magazine and online education provider Qubed Education, is launching Beauty Industry Essentials, the first-ever online noncredit certificate program to deliver an in-depth introduction to the diverse array of careers in the $265 billion global beauty industry. The program is fully online and self-paced, with rolling admissions, to provide maximum flexibility for participants, who have up to one year to complete the program’s seven courses and receive a Certificate of Achievement from FIT. Enrollment is open at beauty.fitnyc.edu; students can start classes on September 1 or anytime thereafter.
The curriculum has been designed by faculty in FIT’s Cosmetics and Fragrance Marketing, and the courses will be taught by FIT faculty members, along with top editors at Allure, including Editor in Chief Michelle Lee; industry leaders, such as Bobbi Brown, Poppy King, Hannah Bronfman, and Tiffani Carter-Thompson; and professionals at MAC Cosmetics, Shiseido Group USA, and Givaudan, among others.
Beauty Industry Essentials is being offered through FIT’s Center for Continuing and Professional Studies.
