Study in:France
Deadline: 15 June 2019


This Luxury and Fashion Management program at SKEMA Business School recognises that design, trend-recognition and marketing skills are what make today’s luxury and fashion firms successful. These skills are related to new product development, marketing, strategic brand management and communications delivery.

Career opportunities

Careers in a wide range of fashion and luxury fields. Whilst having a strong disciplinary base in international luxury brand management, its range is such that graduates will be able to work with specialists in other areas, getting involved in creative, marketing or finance positions. Graduates can go on to work in top level management, designing, sourcing, merchandising, budgeting, advertising, global luxury or fashion brand management as well as strategy.

Why choose this programme

  • The teaching emphasises an applied, problem-solving approach that means graduates can work productively from the first day on the job.
  • The internship period often leads straight to a contract with that same company
