Double Degree: MIP and Neoma Business School
The International Master in Luxury Management is a 12 month Master’s programme on offer from MIP Politecnico di Milano and Neoma Business School, that seeks to instruct students on managerial topics relevant to the Luxury Management industry, awarding students with a MSc. and a Specializing Master Degree upon successful completion.
The Luxury goods industry deals specifically with the desire for excellence and the exceptional, and has shown in recent years to be an exceptionally resilient industry. Largely due to growing demand in the Asian market and relatively consistent demand from traditional markets, the luxury industry has continued to display promising growth trends in clear contrast to the performance of comparable industries over the last few years. However, in spite of this, the field of luxury management is largely not covered by traditional studies in managerial theory. MIP Politecnico di Milano and Neoma Business School have come together to fill this void.
The International Master in Luxury Management is a 12 month programme, with students dividing their time between studying in Reims, the capital and largest city of the Champagne region in France, and Milan, one of the world’s premier fashion centres.
The course, taught entirely in English, will teach students the importance of combining traditional managerial practices and theories with concepts and methodologies needed to meet the needs of the modern luxury goods industry. This requires superior and outstanding craftsmanship, excellent and cutting edge design skills, unique customer experience delivery throughout all interactions with customers, and the building of a strong meaning through branding.
For most international specializing masters, MIP offers an intensive Italian language course during the first week of classes. Students have then the opportunity to attend a standard Italian language course (up to 40 hours) along the semester.
The course is evenly divided between studying in Reims and Milan. Because of this, students are able to study the operational procedures of both countries, and learn the various methods and practices used in the management of luxury goods and services companies for each country.
