The Fashion School in Cape Town.  Based in the Old Biscuit Mill, Woodstock.

We are excited to announce our awesome placement on the Best Fashion Schools in the World 2019 list for the 4th year in a row. The CEO Insider list has placed the Design Academy of Fashion as the top Fashion Institution in Africa and 108 in the world.

The global list includes institutions such as New York City’s Fashion Institute of Technology (rated the top Fashion School in the world for 2019), while London College of Fashion, a part of the University of the Arts London (UAL) and Parsons School of Design placed 2nd and 3rd, respectively.

The rigorous classification process takes into account global reputation and influence; specialization; recruiter’s feedback; placement rates; admission eligibility; and academic experience as well as data from over 40,000 students, 50,000 industry professionals, and 30,000 recruiters and CEOWORLD magazine’s analytics.

The world’s top fashion institutes for 2019 by the CEOWORLD magazine are assessed based on six major indicators of quality:

1) Academic experience
2) Admission Eligibility
3) Job Placement Rate
4) Recruiter Feedback
5) Specialization
6) Global Reputation and Influence

CEO Insider made the announcement today, 7 March 2019, where according to Papadopoulos, data for the indicators was collected from publicly available sources, university’s website, research, and surveys. The ranking measures the quality of education, job placements of students, and the recruiter’s feedback — without relying on university data submissions. Students, industry professionals, and recruiters were asked to rate institutes on a scale of 1 “marginal” to 100 “outstanding” or “don’t know.”
