Creation of a creative micro-company project on a theme chosen by the group after several weeks of discussion.

The entire product design chain is covered, right through to its attractiveness for the market in question.

The project is tutored by several lecturers throughout the year and culminates in a written project presentation (40 pages excluding appendices) and a 45-minute group defense before a panel of professionals.

“The pedagogical objective of the Master’s in Luxury and Fashion Management is to offer students a versatile, cross-disciplinary approach to the sector’s various professions.

To acquire this broad vision, a succession of complementary and progressive subjects are offered over two consecutive years. These will lead students to produce an individual professional thesis on the theme of their choice, as well as a creative project, assessed at the end of the curriculum by external jurors.

This final creation will also be an opportunity to experience teamwork, in a fictitious simulation close to that of the working world. All our teaching staff are experienced professionals, recruited for their listening skills, so that we can offer our students a personalized, caring approach wherever possible.

Our program is constantly fine-tuned and updated to enable our graduates to acquire the best integration techniques, adaptability and knowledge necessary to work qualitatively in this demanding sector.”
