Does the ma fashion design degree provide the same opportunities as the ba fashion design degree
Mainly in terms of connections


I am also mainly interested in setting up my own brand as that is the big dream but I would also be open to working for other brands or having my designs /brand sold at a retail store but I am from a non fashion background so I am unsure if a fashion design degree or a fashion business degree would be the right fit

I cant seem to find any degrees which offer both

I have tried researching the two degrees and it seems that I would need a degree in fashion design to work for brands or retail shops but they don't offer alot of business knowledge

While a fashion business related degree offers some business knowledge I don't feel like many courses teach the essentials of running a start up

The last degree I have looked at is an entrepreneurship ma but still unsure as it's something I might be able to learn online

Are there any degrees which I havent mentioned that may help ?
