About the course

The Business of Luxury is designed for luxury goods professionals to better understand and navigate an increasingly complex sector, one in which the most important luxury markets are shifting from West to East and from traditional to emerging markets. Executives will master different disciplines specific to luxury goods, such as branding, distribution and specific aspects of financial management, providing them with a broad industry view.
