What our students think…

Thanks to the MSc in Luxury and Design Management, my dream to work in the sector of leather goods became a reality, as I did my end-of-study internship at Louis Vuitton. The specialisation provided by the MSc was a key selection criteria for LV, as was my experience abroad. This internship allowed me to prove myself and to become the Leather Goods Project Manager for the Men's show, under the direction of Virgil Abloh. It's an exciting job at the heart of fashion and luxury!
