MBA in luxury brand management...HELPPP


Hi all,
My name is Nidhi and I'm from India. I'm a Software Engineer by profession and an entrepreneur right now. I have 2.5 yrs of experience right now. I have a speciality design studio for candles in Delhi, India. I'm planning to design more eco friendly products, expand my product line. I think it would be great for me to go for an MBA in Luxury Brand Mgmt as it would help me set up my brand later. I also checked out the course at ESSEC. The program looks very promising, but its a very expensive course. Please advice if the course is good for people with profile like mine. Could someone also tell me about some other good colleges in the same field?

Thanks,
Nidhi

Hi everyone,

I am currently working with Salvatore Ferragamo in India and its been 1 year. I am looking to study in the coming year but its becoming really tough for me to chose as to which college and which course to take up. I would be primarily looking to do a Masters and not a Diploma neither a certificate course in Luxury or Brand Managment. My choice of colleges would be Polimoda in Florence or Istituto Marangoni in London. Both have the course im looking for but im finding it hard to choose. Please Helpp..!!


Hi!
I just happened to see your post and was wondering if i could get some help from you. For a little personal brief, im currently working in India with a design solutions firm, and have a work experience of 1.5 yrs (will be 2 in july). Also I've done fashion merchandising for my graduation.
Im very keen on working with a luxury brand (brand mgt.), and wanted to do an MBA for the same from ESSEC or INSEAD or basically any good European or American university with the right industry contacts. But i feel i still have at least 2 more yrs of work-ex to work on, before an MBA, so i was just curious(as you'd mentioned Salvatore Ferragamo) about your profile. Im sorry if im prying, but I just wanted to know how you got to Ferragamo, and what you do there... as work experience from a luxury brand would be a real positive.
I'd be very obliged if i could get your help.

Hey Everyone!!
All the replies that are being posted were of great help! Seems like Essec B School is on the top of everyone's list, many seem to be eyeing on it (including me!) :-) Firstly, can anyone please let me know whether they want any work exp in the luxury sector or anything else will do. Everyone seems to be switching from one field to the other. Will that make sense during the admn procedure & interviews? Secondly, i just finshed my final year in uni and wil graduate in july. Was thinking of working with a luxury brand before applying for next year, will that much of experience ensure that i get through? Coz apparently, it's not been mentioned in the school website that 3 yrs min exp is mandatory.. they've just mentioned "any past exp or internships(if any)" in the admn requirements section....anyway i would really appreciate if anyone could help me with this ...i reallly need to sort this out before i graduate!!!! :-)

Hey everyone!!

I recently got to know about 2 more institutes for luxe management, these are the post grad/master's prog.i.e. IUM,International University of Monaco and Polimoda in Italy, IUM sounds pretty good. But, Im wondering whether it is as good as the one in France like Em Lyon. If anyone's got any idea about this, feel free to post your comments. Thanks.

Hi,

I'm currently a student at HEC and I second that.
To me, anyone seriously looking at a good degree in Luxury Brand Management should consider mainly ESSEC and HEC. (I'll obviously write more about HEC as I'm better informed about it.)

Why?

1) Because these two institutions are so prestigious in France that it can open many doors.
In France everybody has heard of HEC, and many have heard of ESSEC. Skema and IUM are never heard of. It is important to think about it because it means that when the Luxury Club tries to organise a visit of LV's flagship store, the LV staff is responsive ;)

2) Because location matters.
Being located in Paris (or close to Paris), these two institutions allow their students to discover a lot of what Luxury is. Hey, all you need is to walk around the city during the week end.

3) Because these two programmes are just the most qualified.
ESSEC has had their Luxury programme for over a decade now and they are recognised in the industry.
HEC has started a Luxury certificate this year (http://www.hec.edu/Certificates/Luxury-Strategies/About-the-certificate) and it has been able to attract amazing teachers (as an example, one teacher use to be the CEO of LV, and another one was VP at Hermès reporting to the CEO). Please note that these are teachers, not just one-off seminars. These people can teach luxury as they lived it for years and are open to discuss the student's projects.

Hi Bianca,
Thanks for letting us know about the HEC certificate courses, I only knew about the MSc and MBA programs till now. I've pretty much read everything about the program(luxury strategies) by now. Just one problem, I couldn't find the fees and financial aid section. Also, they haven't mentioned the time period of the prog, I was even thinking of downloading the brochure online, but there is no such facility provided. If you do have any idea about this, please feel free to post your comments.

The Luxury certificate is a 3 months specialisation offered to their MBA and MSc.
So you'll have to apply to either MSc or MBA and pay their respective fees. The fee for the HEC MBA is 45keur.
http://www.mba.hec.edu/Admissions/Financing

In the MBA curriculum, it is available only to the September intake and comes during the 1st personalisation phase of the MBA (http://www.mba.hec.edu/Academics/Curriculum-Design) where people can basically choose to take a certificate programme instead of electives.

In my class, once we had started our classes in the MBA, we could apply to various certificates (http://www.hec.edu/Certificates) which allow students to specialise in areas that are of interest.
As an MBA students, I didn't follow the Luxury certificate but could take some classes with the three faculty experts mentionned in the website and I thought they were awesome.

heyy Rhea and Bianca! i was going through your posts and am really interested in taking up the certificate course at HEC.
i also have been doing a lot of research lately and have gathered that Emlyon Bussiness school is also a great option for the same. its not a certificate course and is very specific to the subjects we would like to learn.
Also about the certificate course, will it be enough to land up a job at a good luxury brand since its just a 3 month course! No doubt the faculty is really impressive but is it worth it ?

The luxury certificate is delivered as part of either an MSc or MBA program at HEC. The studies last at least a year (for MSc) to 16 months (for MBA).
Consider that you do an MSc with a specialisation in Luxury.
This is of course a very good value proposition for luxury companies.

Being a student of the HEC MBA, I can assure you that the school has all the right contacts in the luxury industry. It's not only the teachers, but a whole with a great dynamic for this sector. At the MBA, the Luxury Club is very active and organises corporate visits to luxury companies. Many students (of MBA and MSc) nailed internships/jobs at luxury big names (Hermès, Gucci, LVMH, L'Oréal).

Hi all.
Thank you very much for such an informative session. I am also currently in a decision phase.

Now I learn a little bit more about HEC and ESSEC...

Since Bianca's provided us with the information about luxury management program at HEC.... I was wondering if there's anyone who knows details about luxury management program at ESSEC.

I've checked out polimoda in Florence as well... and it looks like a great program! But they do not require a GMAT or any crazy requirement like the normal MBA programs so it's giving me a second thought. But they seem to have very good connections with all the european luxury companies.

Please help us if you know anymore detailed information about these schools.

Thank you!

Learning the Business of Booze in a Wine MBA

Article Jun 08, 2015

In response to an increasingly international and competitive market, MBA students in Europe and the US are learning how to manage the business side of wine.

Top Business Schools for Luxury Brand Management

Top List

From Armani to Versace and Ralph Lauren, luxury brands accounted for over $300 billion in 2019 alone, by some estimates. And with surging demand from the emerging middle classes in countries like India and China, the industry is poised for more growth.

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. Being near to luxury firms can help with networking opportunities; some students also opt to pursue MBA internships in luxury firms, for hands-on experience in the sector.

See a list of the Top 10 MBAs for Luxury below.
