Management in Textiles Industry




The third specialty is especially prepared and addressed to candidates who are interested in developing their managerial skills in the textiles industries. The textile industry is very strong in Poland and one of our principal textile production and trade cities is Łódź. The growth of textile industry (production and sales) has been increasing in recent years, and there are over 116 thousands employees working in this branch - that is quite impressive. Poland in general, and main Polish cities (Warsaw, Łódź, Poznań, Katowice) have lots of consumers who are interested in fashion and clothing, so the textile industry is most certainly a huge market in Poland. Other European countries are also interesting markets to observe, as far as the main trends in fashion and textile industry are concerned. This specialty should be of much interest for those candidates who would like to study management within this sector and gain practical skills and knowledge about the textiles market. The management and marketing theories will meet practical aspects of textile businesses. Students who would like to study it are recommended to be interested and involved in the soft goods market.
