Internship and Master Thesis

In addition to providing students with the knowledge necessary to excel in their future careers, this master requires students to apply that knowledge and gain hands-on experience through two main activities: an internship and a master thesis.


Students are required to complete a two months internship (9 ECTS) in a company of their choice. Thanks to the mobility aspect of this master, students will have the opportunity to create an international network of contacts that will help them in finding the internship opportunity they desire.

Students can do their internship during their fourth semester in whichever location they prefer.

During this semester, they will have an online course and their master thesis, which gives them the flexibility to find an internship outside of Switzerland or France if desired.


Master Thesis

During the last semester, students will be researching and writing their Master Thesis (18 ECTS) on a topic of their choice related to the digital fashion communication domain.

The University Library of the Lugano Campus offers our students a rich collection of specialist literature available both online and offline. The Institute of Digital Technologies for Communication offers eye-tracking technologies and other useful tools for digital communication research.

More detailed information will be provided once enrolled in the master.
