Overview

It seems you really can’t put a price on luxury. Did you know that Luxury Goods routinely perform better than others, even during times of economic downturn? Leading market analysts and industry experts tell us that the reason for this lies in their innate ability to meet the demand for the ‘exceptional’, seen in an ever-increasing number of customers. And everyone knows that these companies need skilled team members to meet these lofty expectations. Luxury companies need people with cutting-edge design skills, outstanding craftsmanship, the ability to deliver a unique customer experience and to make strong associations through brand recognition.

To meet this growing need, we at POLIMI GSoM have worked together with NEOMA Business School to develop this International Master in Luxury Management programme. It’s a full-time, 12-month course that gives you an internationally recognised double degree.

With this programme you’ll get a highly specialised qualification and an internationally recognised double degree from Politecnico di Milano and NEOMA Business School.

  • 1 year, divided evenly between Reims, France, and Milan, Italy
  • 100% in English
  • In partnership with Prada Group
  • Ranked 3rd in the TOP 2021 Eduniversal Best Masters Ranking (Global)
  • Focus on creating and managing a luxury organisation value chain

  • Get in contact with key players in the industry, giving you meaningful connections and networking opportunities

Our International Master in Luxury Management is a 12-month Master programme offered by POLIMI GSoM and NEOMA Business School.

We teach you all the basics of working in the Luxury goods industry, giving you a solid foundation to build upon. If you have a managerial background, we also focus on giving you the awareness and skills you’ll need to take on broader responsibilities that are unique to this industry.

We also include plenty of practical activities in this programme. You can take part in lessons, seminars with international lecturers, workshops on soft skills, company presentations, personal project work in collaboration with companies and company visits.

We teach this master entirely in English.
