What Students Say About Yellowbrick Programs –
The course forces you really to make the building blocks of a clothing brand. Right down to business plan, target market, potential store layouts, pop up shops, you name it. At the end of this course I found myself with an actually written business plan which I never thought I would have or needed. Now I have something professional to continuously build off.

The curriculum is extremely detailed, and the professors/industry experts are very articulate. They explain the ins and outs of the course in a way that translates easily to learners. Being able to complete the course at my own pace was also a huge plus for me since I work full time.
Simone ArzoomanianMusic Industry Essentials Grad
The Business/Entrepreneurship advice and experience gifted to me was very eye-opening information. I learned a lot about starting a streetwear brand and which approach would be best suited for the distribution of my future projects. The course prepared me to deal with collaborators and investors in an orderly manner. I received a lot of advice on how to keep my brand original while sustaining full control and ownership over it.

ChrisFundamentals of Global Sports Management
The course is taught by experienced professionals and fantastic professors from a very good school, and that all of the foundational elements of fashion that you could possibly want to know is all there, and easy to understand.
The various sites and planners that I was provided for things like internships, mentorship, visual style, and portfolio planning was immensely helpful and will continue to be helpful as I apply to fashion schools and internships later on.
