MBA in luxury brand management...HELPPP


The ESSEC MBA in Luxury Brand Management is probably the most comprehensive specialised MBA programme that you will find on the market - I worked there for 3 years, and can vouch for the quality of the curriculum, the selection of participants, and the alumni network. Ideally you should have five to seven years work experience to benefit from all facets of the programme - most MBAs are designed to encourage the cross-sharing of experience between participants; prior experience of the luxury sector is not compulsory - what is important is to bring a certain expertise (for example having experience in retail, or supply-chains, or intellectual property /trademark, sourcing ... ) that will make your profile attractive to the luxury sector. Do check the website and in particular, the CV book of the current/past participants that you can easily download, to give you an idea of the type of participants. Most interesting for this MBA programme is the extensive alumni network as very early on there were participants from Asia - Japan, China, Korea, India - as well as the Americas and Europe.
Good luck on your MBA in Luxury Brand Management search ,

When Francoise says that ESSEC is the *only* luxury MBA in the world, that's not quite right. Even on this site you can find ten (http://www.find-mba.com/search).

How a specialized program in luxury can help you tap into a growing market

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.
