Swati Lodha, MGLuxM's Program Manager, facilitated the orientation. The event started with the lighting ceremony, followed by the director’s address given by Smita Jain . She pumped up the students' spirits and gave a brief overview of the course's benefits. MIP's course director, Dr Alessandro Brun, delivered the students a video message. He welcomed them and briefed them on the second term of the course, which will be held in Milan. His video made the students look forward to the Europe tours, industrial visits and the exposure the place had to offer in the field of luxury.

A power panel discussion on ‘Luxury in India, Today and Tomorrow’ followed the video. Rajpreet Brar, Industry Relations Manager of MGLuxM, moderated the panel, which included:

  • Bhavana Dhapola, Senior Manager - Learning & Organisation Development at Mumbai Travel Retail Pvt Ltd

The panellists explored what luxury meant to each individual, as luxury can be a subjective concept, and the spectrum of luxury in India and the global markets. This discussion was insightful not only for the students but also for the parents who accompanied them. The panellists shared diverse opinions, demonstrating how the concept of luxury is viewed differently by members of the luxury industry. This session inspired students to focus on more than simply finding a high-paying position; they were also encouraged to focus on highlighting India's heritage and putting it on the map of luxury markets.

Following the panel was the student introduction. Batch 10 of MGLuxM features a diversified group of students from various backgrounds and industries, with some having extensive experience in the industry. This made students look forward to not only what the course had to offer but also what they could learn from their classmates.

The Alumni Talk by Rhea Singh (Marketing Executive, Brand.com | Brands managed: Estée Lauder and Clinique – Estée Lauder Companies) and Shivansh Lodha (Client Advisor, Gucci) took the spotlight at the event. Shivansh shared that he had manifested giving the alumni address after witnessing his senior do so, and he fostered the same idea in the hearts of the Batch 10 students.
