"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."

What they say about EMiLUX

My impression of the first days in the EMILUX program is beyond all expectations!

We jumped right into the deep of the dynamic and complexity of luxury business whilst using different learning methodologies such as lectures, guest speeches from the field’s big players and of course open discussions.

What I was positively surprised was how many luxury brands and outstanding business cases we discussed only in the first two days and furthermore how the business terms across all business categories were explained for those who are from different fields. This is really important for all of us participants to be on the same page and to go this path as one unity!

 After months of being connected online, it was a great pleasure to meet our new EMiLUX family in person, to connect and to build up our network.

I am already convinced I made the right choice with the EMILUX program and I am sure my expectations will be further surpassed throughout this master.

The luxury industry is full of opportunities and the psychology behind luxury product consumption is very well understood. Part of the value chain, however, is still unexploited and ripe for further improvements. Given my technical background and general managerial skills, my goal in joining EMiLUX is to strengthen my strategic and marketing understanding of the luxury world to help in the creation of additional value from idea to launch.
