Aix-Marseille University is close to entrepreneurs to promote innovation and societal progress. To also support the professional integration of its students and graduates.

The presence of our students from the fashion sector within the MMM testifies the relationships between all of us to guarantee a powerful university, evolve with the reality of economic issues, as a protagonist in this attractive territory.

Our territory, with sites such as Marseille, Aix-en-Provence and Arles, is a major center of creation and the fashion industry. Thanks to Maison Mode Méditerranée, it is also an important player in the Mediterranean region.

The university made a major contribution to this with the co-creation of the very first French university license "Management and Development of Fashion Products" and then Masters 1 and 2 in "Fashion and Textile Professions". Built in collaboration with professionals in the "Fashion clothing" sector, this excellent training offer is unique, selective and attractive at the international level.

Located near our St Charles campus, not far from the City of Innovation and Knowledge of Aix-Marseille and the political headquarters of AMU in Pharo, the MMM and our students are at the heart of a district of business and culture, players in the economy of the fashion professions which bring together more than 15,000 jobs in our region.

In the particular global economic context that is ours today, we must, together carefully, ensure the dynamism and daring of this sector.

President of Aix Marseille University
