I'm looking for a college where I can study business and design. I have been looking into business schools and was planning on minoring in something art/design related but have realized that what I really want is to do fashion but still get the business side of it so that I have a variety of skills that are not only specific to fashion design. I am super conflicted because I love NYU, and I feel that the quickest way into the fashion industry is just being in NYC. However, they don't have a fashion minor. Does anyone know if I could take classes at Parsons/FIT while at NYU? If so, does that even make sense financially? I would love to attend Parsons for their BBA program but I just don't have time at this point to do the Parsons Challenge. Does anyone know how difficult it is to get into their business and design program? I have an okay GPA and great SAT/SAT II Math II scores but if the Parsons Challenge is what is weighed most heavily I probably wouldn't have time to make anything amazing. Does anyone have any other suggestions for doing business/design? There are very few colleges that I have found that offer a degree similar to what Parsons offers but that would be an ideal program. I also just feel like being anywhere besides NYC is a disadvantage (I currently live just outside it) when it comes to making connections and getting into the industry. My parents also care about the college being prestigious and well-known. What do you think are my best options?6 replies
