LIM College

At LIM College, you’ll learn from faculty who understand the fashion business inside and out, as well as liberal arts professors who will teach you to think critically and communicate clearly.


Nearly eight decades ago, Maxwell F. Marcuse, an authority and pioneer in the fields of education and retail, was asked by leading retailers to create an educational institution for the business of fashion and merchandising. In 1939 Mr. Marcuse founded what was originally known as the Laboratory Institute of Merchandising (LIM) and in 2009 became LIM College.


LIM College fosters a unique connection between real world experience and academic study in business principles. A LIM College education empowers students to become accomplished professionals in the dynamic global fashion world.


Located in Midtown Manhattan, LIM College prepares students for successful careers in the global business of fashion and its many related industries.
