The Master in Luxury Business hones in on both the culture of business and the business of culture. A masterpiece program shaping Chief Executive Officers who are ready to tackle all luxury categories at full speed, students — levering on heritage or innovation — learn to manage small companies or luxury holdings, conquer mature or emerging markets and even turn wishes into reality.
This program features three main areas: Branding, Prestige and Value & Price. Each in-depth and intensive area includes a training project and a final project centered on uniqueness, allowing students to implement their own business formula to further develop a new start-up or an existing company.
This intensive specialization program includes many field trips, including one week in Paris accompanied by Linda Loppa as well as several internship opportunities. Classes focus on hands-on material and are run by teachers and guests from the industry, who also act as one-to-one consultants during the final projects presented in front of headhunters, investors and human resource managers.
Lessons take place from April to December and amount to a total of 700 contact hours. There is the possibility of completing the program with an internship in a fashion company, leading to the overall obtainment of 80 credits. English language proficiency and attendance are required. Candidates with work experience or relevant studies in fashion and related fields are eligible and selected after the admission process.
Upon completion of the Master, students will be automatically given the possibility to partake in the Polimoda Talent program.
