This agreement will establish the creation and launch, in New York City, of a customised course that will serve to complement the courses offered by
SKEMA's Global Luxury and Management (GLAM) programme— an MSc accredited by the French Conference des Grandes Ecoles. The programme, which is open to students holding a bachelor's degree or higher, offers a one-year and a two-year track, with a limited cohort of 50 students.
'Multicultural and ethical values in luxury'
Four courses will be offered by
NYU School of Professional Studies (SPS) — starting by NYU SPS/SKEMA Business School 2021 'Multicultural and ethical values in luxury'. "The development of strategic agreements is one of the pillars of our
SKY25 strategic plan (SKEMA Years 2020-2025). The choice of NYU SPS, already recognised for its expertise in the luxury sector, illustrates this perfectly," explains Patrice Houdayer, Vice Dean in charge of programmes, international and student life.
First semester in the US
Students will spend their first semester in the United States on SKEMA's American campus (Raleigh, NC) as well as on the NYU SPS campus, and will continue their second semester at the new flagship Grand Paris Campus (France) which opened early 2021.
A study tour of New York City
In addition to the courses given at NYU SPS, the programme will include a study tour of New York City, including visits to major luxury companies such as Tiffany & Co.
"The United States is one of the leading luxury markets. To be able to understand it from the inside with its actors on the field provides an undeniable added value to a young graduate whose ambition is to start a career in this sector," says Anthony Ledru, president & CEO of Tiffany & Co, a 1995 SKEMA alumnus and member of the MSc Global Luxury and Management's board.
Diversified world of luxury
In addition, the MSc Global Luxury and Management allows students to understand the diversified world of luxury - Paris, New York, Champagne, Cannes or Monaco - through a wide range of sectors: fashion, hotels, travel, automotive, yachting, services...
The programme also addresses the new challenges of luxury — CSR & sustainability, digitalisation and client centric processes — and ends with the completion of a master thesis and an internship of at least four months.
The cost of the programme is €25,000 for the one-year and €35,000 for the two-year MSc format.
PS: The programme is also accessible at no extra cost to students from SKEMA's Grande Ecole programme/Master in Management.
