Mastering the skills required to run a thriving luxury business and developing a versatile mindset: the new Global Master for Luxury Business Professionals is the ultimate choice for ambitious, success-oriented fashion and business students.
Istituto Marangoni and the Polimi Graduate School of Management recently worked together to launch a postgraduate programme focused on digital transformation, supply chain sustainability and the financial aspects of the luxury industry. Two leaders in their respective fields, the schools combined their business and luxury expertise in a hybrid approach blending in-class and online learning.
Along with the best practices in fashion, design and business, the immersive 12-month course will also tap into the latest digital technologies, leading e-commerce platforms, and hands-on, creative experiences.
During the first module of the course, participants have the chance to deep-dive in the luxury world, approaching it both from a brand and a consumer perspective. The unique teaching approach, focused on a broad and cosmopolitan attitude, allows participants to learn more about the universal concept of Luxury and its Industry. Through a wide-ranging introduction, they walk in the footsteps of classic European luxury and get to have a closer look at the magnificent milestones of the past.
Value in luxury keeps evolving. Starting from this notion, the second module is masterfully developed and steeped in high-quality content, providing a 360° vision of the evolution and adjustments that are happening in the luxury world. Participants get to be clued-up about design management and collection development practices peculiar of the luxury industry, as well as becoming also proficient in supply chain, marketing, and brand management.
Innovating means disrupting with the past, as new business models are more and more employed in luxury companies. While new scenarios are taking hold, the meaning of innovation for luxury is being re-shaped, together with the digital experience that comes with it for the final user. Throughout this module, participants strongly focus on ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance), as they grasp the fundamentals of today’s market and examine significant case studies.
MIP Politecnico di Milano and Istituto Marangoni have launched a joint Master’s programme, aimed at providing participants with critical and relevant skills to face today’s luxury market. The Global Master’s Programme for Luxury Business Professionals also provides the unique opportunity of ‘on-site experiential weeks’ in the world’s leading luxury capitals - Milan, Paris and London
Each experiential week will be enriched by an exclusive partnership with carefully selected luxury companies. Renowned Professionals will challenge participants with a specific Project, allowing them to leverage the knowledge and tools learned during previous modules. They will liaise with industry experts and learn how brands implement strategic business models
The study week will include Masterclasses by industry experts, as well as visits to Company Headquarters and Showrooms, to learn more about the daily management of luxury businesses, and visits to Museums, Cultural Events and Exhibitions to expand the students’ cultural horizons and help them think outside the box
The Global Master’s for Luxury Business Professionals provides the opportunity to work with top-notch Luxury Companies. Partner Brands will help define the Master’s content and design specific project briefs for the students, and senior managers will also deliver Masterclasses and Workshops, that might be delivered both onsite in the Schools’ location, or at Company Offices
By connecting with professionals from partner companies, students will get a unique hands-on experience of the concepts and topics covered in class. They will learn how successful brands are developing and adopting innovative business models and will be presented the opportunity to take exclusive tours of company headquarters
Students will be able to leverage on a direct testimony on how these successful brands like Carter are developing and adopting innovative business models in luxury, and will also be able to visit Company headquarters with dedicated tours
Participants will have the opportunity to explore the dynamic environment of the new luxury industry, with the support of exclusive brands like Alibaba Group and get a closer look at innovative platforms such as Alibaba Tmall Luxury Pavillon, a leading e-commerce platform built for fashion and luxury that provides consumers with a premium digital shopping experience.
Alibaba Group will support the experiential week in London and enrich the course with direct testimonials from English fashion brands and businesses present on their platform.
