Considering ESSEC EMiLUX


roiseau

Hello,

I come from a background of 12 years in the fine jewelry industry in Asia. I have also studied fashion design. I am a US citizen. I got very good GRE scores with just a week of preparation, but they expire this June 2020, so I will need to use them ASAP.

I would like to work in Luxury Brand Management, and learn how to start my own business in fashion and jewelry later on. So I am looking for a school with a strong curriculum, career network, and the possibility to help students launch their own businesses, or something similar.

I am considering the ESSEC EMiLUX program, but it is Executive Education, so it's part-time, with too much downtime (about 1-1.5 months) in between each of the 7 "modules," each of which also takes place in a different country.

The costs for these trips are not included in the tuition, and I'm not sure I can afford to travel around the world and rest for 1-1.5 months in between each learning session.

I would prefer to study full-time, but I was told that, with my experience, I would no longer qualify for the full-time regular MBA, but will need to go for Executive Education instead.

I was also considering NYU Stern's Fashion & Luxury MBA, but it is a full-time program (good), but I have already missed the deadline (yesterday). I was also not sure if it was the right fit for me, considering the "better" option at ESSEC's EMiLUX.

I would like to know if anyone here has attended the EMiLUX program, and can share some insight about job placements post-graduation, start-up business funding possibilities, etc.

Otherwise, is there a better program elsewhere I should consider, instead?

An MBA in Luxury Brand Management can lead to a variety of jobs in this sector, including roles like marketing managers, business development consultants, and brand managers. Some schools offer specialized MBA programs in Luxury, as well as related fields like Fashion or Retail.

Many students interested in breaking into the luxury sector gravitate to hubs like Paris or Milan, where many of the top firms are based; others go to New York City or London to be in the heart of the action.
