MIAMI, July 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Miami International University of Art & Design (MIU) was recently selected by the Business of Fashion's (BOF) education council as one of 2019's best overall schools in the United States for undergraduate degree programs in Fashion Design. MIU is the only Florida school on the list. Other schools in the U.S. on the list include: Fashion Institute of Technology, Parsons School of Design and Savannah College of Art and Design, among others.
The Business of Fashion's The Best Fashion Schools in the World list assesses top undergraduate and graduate programs in fashion design, fashion art direction and communications, and fashion business and management programs. The assessment examines 30 different data points gathered from 66 institutions; surveys completed by 13,500 students and alumni; feedback from 114 leading HR and industry professionals; global fashion school faculty; and input from the BOF Education Council, a committee of 12 global experts from fashion education and industry.This year, the Education Council did away with the numerical ranking system used in previous years, and instead highlights top programs and their areas of excellence based on major indicators such as global influence, learning experience and long-term value of the program.

This global acknowledgment is a true testament to our faculty, students and successful alumni who continue to give back and engage with our University, offering our students guidance, internships and jobs through the networking opportunities we offer," says Charlene Parsons, Fashion Director for Miami International University of Art & Design.
