Many people assume that to work in a particular field, you have to have a degree in that field. Well, sometimes this is true but not always.
On this episode, we’re joined by Burak Cakmak who became Dean of Fashion at Parsons School of Design even though he didn't study fashion or have experience as a fashion designer. What he did have was a rich background in other aspects of the fashion business, especially supply chain and sustainability. Burak shares the deliberate actions he took to develop his expertise, gain exposure to all aspects of the industry, and build the credibility needed to rise to where he is today.
It's an unforgettable story loaded with wisdom that can be applied in any industry.
