LVMH Chair is only available to ESSEC students in MSc in Management and Advanced Master in Marketing. You first have to become an ESSEC STUDENT before applying to the Chair.
The application process consists of three steps:
Step 2: Individual recorded video interview (Opening on Aug. 24 and closing on Sept. 29, 2022)
Step 3: Face to face interview for selected candidates (Oct. 6 and 7, 2022)
Individual recorded video interview – Deadline: September 29, 2022 at 3pm
This step will allow us to see your profile beyond your CV. Below is the outline of the process of this step.
1. You will see the link to the platform on the confirmation page of your application: In order to log in to the platform, please enter you name, phone number and email address.
2. Test your equipment and do some practice videos: Once you have logged in, you will be able to test your equipment and complete a training video (or several), until you are ready to start with the recorded interview.
3. Be aware of the time limits: There will be 4 questions for you to answer: all questions will have a time limit of 2 minutes.
4. Types of questions: The questions will be on your motivation to join the LVMH Chair, your interest to learn about and possibly work in the luxury industry, and your knowledge and understanding of luxury.
Important: Please note that you will not be able to re-do the recorded video interview. Once you start with the official questions, you will not be able to restart recording. This is why we encourage you to find a quiet place, make sure your laptop is connected to an outlet, and that you are ready to complete the interview. We also encourage you to complete at least one training video so that you are comfortable with the platform.
