The Business of Fashion website has ranked Israel’s Shenkar College of Engineering, Design and Art among the top undergraduate fashion programs in the world. Shenkar placed 11 out of 21 fashion institutions offering students a BA degree.
“Shenkar blends both the technical and conceptual in its curriculum. Graduates leave the college feeling equipped for a profession in the fashion industry,” the fashion website writes about the Tel Aviv school.
Notable alumni of Shenkar include Alber Elbaz of Lanvin and Kobi Halperin of Elie Tahari.
The Business of Fashion, considered an essential daily resource for fashion creatives, executives and entrepreneurs in over 200 countries, says its inaugural Global Fashion School Rankings surveyed students and alumni of 24 fashion schools around the world and received feedback from 88 HR professionals and global fashion influencers. The website also weighed in with its own analysis.
The new list measured fashion institutions based on their global influence, learning experience and long-term value.
