Course summary

This course will address the specific challenges and opportunities of the luxury sector and is the perfect choice for students that see their future careers with premium, high-end and luxury brands. The course encourages you to develop the skills and competences of future managers in the Luxury Industry. To do this, you will be capable of making management decisions at both a strategic and at a tactical level, emphasizing the complexity and dynamics of business and management and an awareness of the nature of the various factors, which influence management decisions.

The School provides a unique setting for students to observe their peers, taking advantage of the proximity of fashion and textile design students at the Parkside Campus and the School of Jewellery in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter. The course encompasses numerous field trip opportunities so that you can reflect on your developing knowledge in relation to professional practice and the luxury industry. Employability and key transferable skills are embedded within the course ethos to maximize your capabilities and understanding of potential career opportunities.

Your studies will be based at Parkside and Curzon at the City Centre Campus. You will begin your year with modules in Industry Practice & Context, Global Business Strategy and Leadership Development which will introduce you to a range of skills and experience that will form the foundation of your further studies. You will have regular opportunities to meet experts from the world of Luxury and guest speakers from the wider Creative Industries.

Employability and key transferable skills are embedded within the course ethos to maximise your capabilities and understanding of potential career opportunities. Many modules require group projects in the field to build first-hand knowledge of the Luxury Industry. The importance of positive contribution to a team and close working relationships with colleagues is a key feature. The course is structured to build on experiences and embrace real scenarios through live projects, simulated practice requiring actual problem solving. This aims to develop your confidence and ambitions to explore a breadth of careers opportunities within a global industry.

Opportunity: Student Jobs on Campus ensures that our students are given a first opportunity to fill many part-time temporary positions within the University. This allows you to work while you study with us, fitting the job around your course commitments. By taking part in the scheme, you will gain valuable experiences and employability skills, enhancing your prospects in the job market. It will also allow you to become more involved in University life by delivering, leading and supporting many aspects of the learning experience, from administration to research and mentoring roles.
