"Luxury requires you to be both highly imaginative and highly disciplined. The industry has dramatically changed in recent decades, by going through continued revolutions in digital technologies, international markets, and consumer trends. The successful companies are those that preserve their heritage and fundamental values of beauty, creativity, and exclusivity, but at the same time understand new trends and catch emerging opportunities. These are exciting times for luxury, a fascinating yet challenging market where international managers are asked to perform at their best, equipped with cutting edge management tools and endless creativity. I believe that EMiLUX is a unique opportunity for talented international professionals who want to develop their career in this growing and dynamic industry."

Gabriella Lojacono
EMiLUX Director

"In today's world, luxury goods companies have been able to recover from the adverse impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and they are now presented with new opportunities arising from the "green transition," and they are now progressing towards a circular economic model, responsible business, and innovation. EMiLUX offers an exceptional journey across the many areas of the luxury world, which can help international managers enrich their personal and professional lives by combining cultural heritage and creativity with a forward-looking planning, and a business-oriented approach "
