Does any have any suggestions on which luxury brand management programs companies recruit the most from? I'm seeking a program that has excellent ties with companies and via which, I'm most likely to find a job from.

Hello.

I am exploring MBA's in Luxury Brand Management, with Fashion as a specialism.

I have a number of years industry experience and have recently taken my MA in Fashion Entrepreneurship, but I really want to go far in this field and I feel that studying this MBA may push my boundaries and take me that step further.

I would like to know if anyone has gone through the process of having a brand sponsorship or scholarship an MBA, and how does the funding work - would you need to pay for your own living expences and accomodation if they cover your fees, or is there funding that offers cover for all elements of your study year? Another thought I had was perhaps it is better to become an employee of such a brand prior to engaging in the MBA.

Any thoughts would be appreciated! Thank you.

Since fashion is a low-pay industry with a high supply of quality graduates, I don't think there's very much employer sponsorship.

Many MBA programs award scholarships to the strongest candidates, the ones for which business schools would fight each other. They might cover some living expenses. However, there are very few MBAs in fashion and luxury and they are not well funded with scholarship monies.

Thank you for your prompt reply. You have hilighted an area of doubt that had already been in my mind!

I have additionally been looking at the area of luxury craft - I have trained at Cordwainers and have a huge affinity for hand made, high quality, bespoke product. I also worked for one of the worlds renowned bespoke shoemakers whilst taking my MA - I may then choose to go down the route of luxury craft, as opposed to fashion.

Thank you for your insight!

I would strongly recommend only 2 schools for this specialization. They are SDA Bocconi's MAFED program and ESSEC's MBA Luxe.

Do a thorough research on these 2 programs and I can assure you that you can get a job anywhere with the recognition of these 2 top-notch management schools.

These are great programs. I just wanted to add that Glasgow Caledonian University's new one-year luxury brand marketing program in East London could be promising - especially for people looking for a program like this in the UK, where they are more rare than Italy or France.

Ok, but what about Polimoda in Florence?
They are the only one that talks about luxury furniture.

Does anyone know about this course?
