Dear Aspirant, Fashion Management is a useless course option, it has been introduced by very few institutes just to glamorise the fashion domain. The only important and crucial aspect is Fashion Designing. Without Designing, management is useless and unnecessary.

Dear Aspirant, You have chosen a very niche area for your career. I feel after graduation you should first try for getting a job immediately. I am sure that NIFT offers great support for placements. Doing Management after graduation will not help you since you will then get jobs based on the MBA you have done and not on your graduation specialisation.  Fashion Marketing is a good area however doing a job and then looking for this adding of qualification is recommended.
