Course content

Develop the creative and business skills necessary for success in the luxury industry. One of just a few courses of its kind in the UK, this MA Luxury Brand Management offers the opportunity to learn from academics with extensive industry experience at Winchester School of Art.

Studying in a creative art school environment, you’ll learn about brand design and management in a range of premium industries, from fashion and perfume to yachts and automobiles. We use our network of contacts to create exceptional learning opportunities such as field trips to London and Paris, regular talks by external speakers from companies such as Aston Martin and The Ritz, and the opportunity to work on a real-world consultancy project.

You’ll develop the skills needed for success in one of the fastest-growing areas of global business, and learn about luxury consumer profiles and website design, to social media influence. You’ll also gain an understanding of the evolution of the luxury market and contemporary debates in the field, informed by world-class research.

This master’s offers you a high level of industry exposure, creating a range of career opportunities. We also collaborate with a London-based luxury brand agency to offer a limited number of internships.
