Course content

"Gain a double degree and complementary expertise from the cradles of luxury!"

Programme presentation:

The International Master in Luxury Management is a unique double-degree programme created jointly by NEOMA Business School and POLIMI Graduate School of Management. It delivers a curriculum specialised in how to understand, create and manage value in the luxury sector.

Combining French and Italian expertise and calling on the support of the school’s prestigious partnership with unique partnerships with key luxury firms, the programme covers value creation and management in the luxury sector, from the product design to distribution.

Through the programme’s interactive approach based on active learning with numerous case studies, business seminars and company visits, students acquire hands-on knowledge of the major aspects of luxury management.

Programme objectives:

Students have the opportunity to gain hands-on knowledge of the major aspects of luxury management.

They are in close contact with major luxury companies thanks to the unique partnership with the PRADA Group.

The mission of the programme is to train experts and managers in the luxury sector who have a comprehensive vision of the value chain and can control brand management from design to distribution.

The educational goals are:

  • Master the luxury sector’s environment: stakeholders, activities, interactions
  • Operate efficiently in global and cross-cultural contexts
  • Mobilise oneself and others for a common objective
  • Think creatively and develop added value on work processes and projects

At NEOMA Business School from October to February:

This phase gives students an overview of the competitive structure and business models in the Luxury sector, focusing on the key values of luxury assets. Students learn to understand value creation foundation and discover the fundamentals of luxury management and leadership before moving onto luxury markets (multicultural perspective) and understanding luxury company assets (turning brands into assets).

At POLIMI Graduate School of Management, from February to July:

Students explore value creation and delivery. They work on managing value in production and transforming cultural products into luxury products and collections and employing superior craftsmanship to create outstanding products. Students also study how to convey the luxury experience through communication and retail (digital communication, product and collection design, operations and quality management, supply chain and purchasing management, channel and retail management, and communication and promotion).
