BECOME A GLOBAL LUXURY MANAGER
Gain the skills to excel in the luxury management industry in developed as well as rapidly emerging markets.
The Master in Global Luxury Goods & Services Management (MGLuxM) is a 12-month postgraduate program that will help you transform into an expert manager in the global luxury industry. Developed by SP Jain School of Global Management and MIP Politecnico di Milano Graduate School of Business, the program offers a holistic understanding of developed luxury markets like Europe and the application of marketing, sales and retail concepts in rapidly emerging markets like India. The industry-centric curriculum and real-life projects, undertaken both in Mumbai and Milan, will help you gain an in-depth knowledge of the entire gamut of the luxury industry in significantly distinctive markets.
On successful completion of the program, you will receive an internationally-recognised degree from MIP Politecnico di Milano Graduate School of Business. The program is accredited by Politecnico di Milano and the degree is approved and recognised by the Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR) (Italy). You will also be awarded a Certificate of Completion from SP Jain, giving your career a global impetus.
Note: This program is not an award accredited under the Australian Qualifications Framework. It is also not recognised by AICTE or any other regulatory body in India. MIP is accredited by ASFOR, EQUIS, AMBA and EOCCS.
A highlight of the MGLuxM program is the platform it provides you to network and build rewarding professional connections with some of the world’s top luxury brands and their leaders. This is done through a series of:
Business leaders and luxury trendsetters hand-picked for their proven success and expertise are invited to speak to our students, conduct guest sessions and share their wisdom of building successful brands.
From brand creation to innovation, from luxury supply chain management to retailing, all the content will be addressed using a triple perspective. First, professors will introduce tools and methodologies useful to understand the luxury industry processes. Second, managers will discuss the practical implications of the studied theories, sharing their success stories with participants. Finally, a study tour through half a dozen of the most important luxury districts in Italy and Europe (from German cars to watches in Switzerland, to leather and champagne in France) will allow students an up, close and personal view of the processes behind-the-scene, with factory and showroom tours and meeting with managers and executives.
The Indian luxury market has seen a significant shift in both the perception and the consumption of luxury. This market requires highly skilled and trained leaders who are able to adapt to the complex conundrum of change.
On this note, we, at SP Jain School of Global Management, invite all the future luxury leaders into the MGLuxM community. Precision, Commitment and Excellence are some of the core values that are embodied by all our MGLuxM students.
The industry visits to the BMW factory, Omega Headquarters, and Louis Vuitton Maison have been the best aspect of the course and helped us gain holistic knowledge of the entire industry.
The first-hand knowledge that we gained from industry insiders was my favourite aspect of the MGLuxM program. Insights about global luxury companies helped us understand core values which, I feel, are invaluable.
I have had a gala time studying at SP Jain. Not just the globally relevant curriculum, but even the exposure that I have gained through the various outreach programs, overseas study tours, seminars and guest lectures by the industry stalwarts – it was simply amazing.
SP Jain and MIP’s Master in Global Luxury Goods & Services Management program helped me leverage my multicultural exposure to gain the right perspective and approach. We learnt the fundamentals of luxury management, got the invaluable opportunity to engage and network with international leaders in this business, and gained exposure to world markets. We also got a first-hand experience of the luxury industry through various projects and practical assignments.
Working for a luxury brand like Estée Lauder Companies is a dream come true. My sincere gratitude to the directors of the program – Smita Jain and Alessandro Brun – for their insights and constant feedback.
SP Jain and MIP gave me the opportunity to be a part of the European culture that enabled me to study the European market. This helped me negotiate and crack the interview questions. Working with Roger Vivier has allowed me to put theory into practice and implement what I studied.
After graduating from the program, I got to explore a gamut of opportunities in the niche industry. The program covered all the nuances of doing business including finance, supply chain, marketing and branding elements of a luxury brand. The Milan stint helped me hone my personality and understand how luxury companies work in a mature market like Europe vis-à-vis emerging economies like India.
I recently bagged an offer to work with Venus Jewel, India's leading solitaire company, in their Marketing and Branding team. This has opened doors to a rewarding career in the luxury industry where I can put all that I have learnt during the program to practical use.
Before joining SP Jain, I was working as a Doc Prep and Certifications Officer at HSBC Mortgage Services (Australia). I chose to specialise in Luxury Management as I was passionate about quality lifestyle and high standard of living. My experience at SP Jain has been enriching. The industry visits organised by the School in the niche sector stood out for me. This one-year journey has taught me how to market luxury to the fast-paced industry.
I chose the Luxury Management program as I was fascinated with the industry and was intrigued to learn more. The program has helped me understand marketing strategies and develop skills like business communication, conflict resolution, competitive analysis, team building and teamwork, local awareness and having an eye for detail. I gained a unique perspective of the Indian and the European luxury markets. Our professors shared valuable inputs that helped us prepare for interviews. Studying at SP Jain gave me the leverage on my CV to negotiate for better opportunities.
