FIDM to Teach NGC’s Andromeda Cloud Platform to Tomorrow’s Fashion Leaders

December 29, 2017

In November, we announced that FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising), one of the top fashion and design schools in the U.S., will teach NGC’s next-generation Andromeda Cloud Platform as an integral part of its educational curriculum.

FIDM is offering instruction in NGC Andromeda solutions in the areas of Merchandise Product Development, Apparel Industry Management, Menswear and Apparel Technical Design. The courses will provide FIDM’s students with hands-on training in real-world solutions.

Recently, NGC was at FIDM for “Andromeda Day,” where NGC president Mark Burstein met with leaders from FIDM, as well as FIDM students. Below are a few images taken from the day:

“NGC is very supportive of FIDM’s decision to include Andromeda in a variety of courses offered to their students,” said Mark Burstein, president, NGC Software. “The fashion industry is going through unprecedented disruption and innovation, and technologies such as Andromeda are critical to helping companies succeed in the new world of retail and fashion. Bringing Andromeda into the classroom prepares FIDM’s students for their new careers and enables companies to hire individuals that can become productive more quickly because of that early exposure.”
