The course also covers the luxury industry’s key international markets and its most important sectors.

Head of Leatherwork for the Menswear Fashion Show and Collections | Louis Vuitton

The MSc in Luxury and Design
Management enabled me to channel my passion for leatherwork during my final internship at Maison Louis Vuitton.
The specialization provided by the MSc played a key role in my being selected by the Maison, as did my experiences abroad.
This internship gave me the chance to prove myself and continue on this trajectory since I am now Head of Leatherwork for the Menswear Fashion Show reporting to Virgil Abloh, an exciting role at the heart of the fashion and luxury world.
