LIM College and MOTIF Take Fashion Education to the Next Level with Online Courses for Professionals Worldwide

The first three LIM College courses launching exclusively on MOTIF will cover supply chain, sustainability, and advanced spreadsheet analytics.

Hong Kong – August 12th, 2020 – Leading global fashion e-learning platform MOTIF and New York City’s LIM College are partnering to launch a series of online fashion business courses.

The collaboration will deliver LIM educational material to a global professional audience, including apparel and retail corporate training programs. The first LIM online course on supply chain will be released at the end of August 2020, followed by a course on sustainability, and advanced spreadsheet analytics for fashion professionals seeking to upgrade or expand their skill sets.

Courses are 4-6 weeks in length (for 1.5-2 hours per day) and cost between $290 – $525 USD each. All instruction will be delivered asynchronously – meaning participants can start a course any time they like and complete it on their own time.

MOTIF – an e-learning platform that offers advisory, course creation services as well as a community-based marketplace for professional training material – is supporting the development of LIM courses on the platform. LIM instructors will have access to MOTIF’s newly released course authoring tools and source advisory services, which are built for instructors, universities and companies to self-publish. LIM College will be the first higher education publisher on MOTIF.
