BECOME A GLOBAL LUXURY MANAGER
Gain skills to excel in the luxury management industry in developed as well as rapidly emerging markets.
The Master in Global Luxury Goods and 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.
*This program is not accredited by TEQSA, ASQA or any regulatory body in India or overseas.
This program will allow students to study partly in Mumbai (which is the financial capital of India and, most importantly, the biggest consumer market for luxury products in India) and in Milan (which is the business hub of Italy and the fashion capital of the world – home to more than half of the world’s top luxury brands and designers). Candidates will gain first-hand understanding of the luxury industry in Europe and the application of marketing, sales and retail concepts in emerging markets like India.
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 MGLuxM program is going to dive deep into the various facets of luxury, both from an Indian as well as an international perspective. The participants of this program will get an opportunity to get an in-depth understanding of the Indian luxury market and similar luxury markets in Europe. By the end of the program, students will be best equipped to start their careers or set up entrepreneurial ventures in the luxury space. They will be able to correlate the distinctions of the developed European luxury markets and the whimsical nature of the emerging Indian luxury market.
The MGLuxM program has a vast curriculum. From regular classes to guest lectures, Conversation Series, assignments and study tours – all were exclusive and specially-designed for the program. Guest lectures and Conversation Series are sessions where we have evolved – from gaining bookish knowledge to understanding the competitive industry from experts – whilst sitting in the classroom. Study tours, be it in Milan or India, have given us a practical and hands-on experience with the biggest companies in the world.
Personally, I believe that the best experience is a hands-on experience. Unlike regular programs which allow students just 1-2 industry visits amidst a plethora of textbook-based lectures, the MGLuxM program adopted a completely hands-on learning methodology, including countless cultural and industry immersions. These allowed us to understand the challenges faced by real-world luxury brands and helped me improve my problem-solving skills. It helped me link the knowledge I had gained inside the classrooms to what actually happens at the shop floors.
What drew me towards the Luxury Management program was the course content and the fact that it was associated with SP Jain. The course structure was thoughtfully planned for students from assorted academic backgrounds. It was to bring students like me, an architect with no background in business studies, on par with other students, who have perhaps studied or worked in management related roles previously. This led us all together on a path of learning how to curate, design, market, and sell luxury products and services.
The MGLuxM program was one of the most enriching experiences I’ve ever had. It gave me the opportunity to study at SP Jain and MIP, two of the world’s leading colleges that came together to provide us with an incredible learning experience. The program helped me understand how adaptive and ever-changing the luxury industry is, with first-hand exposure to both the local and global luxury markets.
The rigorous curriculum and exposure to the vast network of leading professionals, at both SP Jain and MIP, helped me become a professional with multicultural awareness and truly transformed me into a global business manager. This played a vital role in helping me secure a job in a challenging and densely competitive market like Dubai.
The charm of learning hands-on and having the “touch and feel” factor is essential to experience what luxury truly is. Giving this aspect importance, the students are taken on study tours to embrace luxury in its purest form. The opportunity to visit the Headquarters of various premium and luxury brands and meeting with the CEOs and Department Heads, across Europe, exposes the aspirants to a plethora of ideas, opportunity, and experience.
Speaking of a 360-degree learning experience, the students are taught various subjects ranging from Accountancy and Finance to Operations, Economics, Marketing, Branding and more. This academic experience encompasses a holistic view and approach to learning and moulding the students into business leaders.
