Concentration in Luxury Business Management (LBM)

March / May 2019

In addition to the 4 functional Concentrations, the SDA Bocconi Full-Time MBA Program offers participants the possibility to further personalize their development through the field-based Concentration in Luxury Business Management (LBM) in partnership with GUCCI, LVMH and Valentino, among the biggest players in the worldwide luxury industry. The active involvement of managers and professionals in the program assures an ideal interaction between theory and practice.

This unique option is one of the very few Concentrations in Luxury Business Management within a top ranked International MBA, strategically located in Milano, Italy.

Given the sector specificity, the LBM Concentration usually engages a limited number of participants. MBA Candidates who apply for the LBM Concentration must demonstrate precise interests and solid motivations: the School will give priority to those who most clearly indicate why the experience is necessary for their personal growth and career advancement.

The Luxury Business Management concentration is one of the main reasons why I’ve chosen the Full-Time MBA at SDA Bocconi. We had the unique chance to learn as much from the academics who shared their exclusive knowledge of the industry as from senior managers in the most famous luxury companies in Milan, Florence, and Rome.”
