Marketing in the Fashion & Luxury Industries
This academic block is divided into 4 modules based around the integration of marketing into the Fashion & Luxury Goods sector.
Company Consulting Mission
You will become a consultant during a two-week, real-life consultancy assignment!
A TBS partner company will submit a topical strategic issue to the class in a letter of engagement.
With support from TBS professors, students will work on a strategic diagnosis to analyze the company’s competitive position. Finally, they will propose strategic and operational recommendations to meet the challenges faced by the company.
This hands-on project will allow you to put into practice the skills and knowledge you have obtained during the MSc Fashion & Luxury Marketing course.

Company Visits Program
The master’s program offers you the chance to visit a number of fashion & luxury companies, so that you can experience them from the inside. The visits will be directly related to the activities and projects on the MSc Fashion & Luxury Marketing course.
Some of the companies visited during previous years include:

You will be asked to write an individual dissertation on a current marketing issue in the fashion & luxury industries from an academic or professional perspective.

You would also be granted 10 additional ECTS credits to validate your acquired skills.
