What Does LIM Stand For?

LIM stands for "Laboratory Institute of Merchandising", although it is now officially known as "LIM College." Nearly eighty years 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. In 2009 the institute became known officially as LIM College.
