The LVMH Chair: FUTURE of LUXURY

Jointly created by ESSEC and the LVMH Group in 1991, the LVMH Chair is the longest-standing program worldwide specially dedicated to training young talents for careers in the luxury industry.

The LVMH Chair offers students a unique program that integrates theoretical knowledge through courses given by ESSEC professors and practical expertise through seminars given by LVMH managers. Students will be able to immerse themselves in the world of luxury and the LVMH ecosystem, travelling through métiers and each step of the value chain: from design and creation, to brand management, supply chain and manufacturing, digital transformation and entrepreneurship, and client excellence. The guest lectures given by the LVMH managers are the highlight for many LVMH Chair students as they are exposed to various LVMH Houses and topics, ranging from launching a new fragrance to managing the digital strategy of a luxury brand to dealing with supply chain challenges to meet customer expectations. The LVMH Chair also provides participants with hands-on experience through exclusive company visits and field projects.

Finally, being part of the LVMH Chair also means joining the luxury community at ESSEC. The chair alumni community is very active and involved in organising events several times per year. In addition, our alumni are recognized all over the world and extremely well represented in the luxury industry.
