Fashion Institute of Technology Promotes New Research in Hair & Beauty

Located at 520 Eighth Avenue New York, The Beauty Center at FIT is the only one of its kind in the United States. It was created with the ambition to contribute to improving the future generation of beauty leaders.

The Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), a college of the State University of New York (SUNY), has announced the opening of a new research center (called The Beauty Center at FIT) dedicated to the beauty industry.
Launched in partnership with key players in the beauty industry, including Cosmoporf North America, the new facility is dedicated to global business strategy and consumer trends, it is described as a dynamic research center for the beauty industry.
“As an extension of FITs internationally recognized program in Cosmetics and Fragrance Marketing and Management (CFMM), we are proud to establish The Beauty Center at FIT,” said Joyce F. Brown, president of FIT. “Through industry partnerships and innovative research that will be advanced by the Center, our masters level students will be positioned to help shape the future of the global beauty industry, often alongside other distinguished CFMM alumni who are leading renowned brands.”

The academic program has been designed as an extension of FIT’s Cosmetics and Fragrance Marketing and Management (CFMM) graduate and research program which will celebrate its 25th anniversary next year. Until now, research by CFMM included extensive field study work in markets ranging from Asia (China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, Singapore) to the Middle East/North Africa (Morocco, UAE) to Europe (Denmark, France, Greece, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, UK).
In the last quarter of a century, more than 450 students have graduated from the CFMM graduate program. It is still the only one of its kind in the United States and is widely recognized as the “Think Tank for the Beauty Industry.” Distinguished CFMM alumni include executives from Chanel, Coty, Inc., DSM Firmenich, e.l.f. beauty, Estée Lauder, IFF, L’Oréal, LVMH, Shiseido, Unilever, and more.

With the creation of The Beauty Center at FIT, the management want to accelerate the program’s ability to predict market trends, identify strategic business opportunities, and build on its record of global research success. The Center has the potential to improve the level of the future leadership of the beauty sector.

There is still no news about it.
