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.
As the world's premier diamond company, De Beers is increasingly seeking out holistic trainings both for our high-potential managers and for our clients, as we operate in an expanding luxury market. Versatility, a 360-degree market view and deep understanding of the industry's various functions give leaders a step-up over the competition. ESSEC Business School has created the Advanced Management Program in the Business of Luxury to respond to these industry needs through a high-impact training during which participants discover firsthand the luxury markets in Paris, Hong Kong, Geneva and New York while interacting with top industry players and academics.
