The LVMH Chair: the 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 academic knowledge through courses given by ESSEC professors and practical expertise through conferences 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 Sustainability in Design and Creation, to Brand Management, Merchandising, Digital Transformation and Innovation, Retail Excellence and Customer Experience

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. The LVMH Chair also provides participants with hands-on experience through exclusive company visits and business cases.

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.
