Explore the Program
The Master in Luxury Brand Management program is workshop-based, supported by seminars, lectures, tutorials, and fieldwork. Industry professionals, the program leader, and project leaders will guide you via individual coaching and mentorship.
The program consists of four customizable course/workshop modules, followed by a professional experience period and a final portfolio presentation.

Guided by industry professionals and faculty project leaders, you will work with leading companies on practical projects such as proposing new products within a brand, producing a fashion editorial for a magazine, or developing a coherent visual display from concept to execution.
To gain real experience working in your field, you will choose from an internship at a company site, a work project on campus in collaboration with a company, or an entrepreneurship module. In each case, you will benefit from mentorship, an inside perspective on your field, and valuable career connections.
