Study Master's degree in Luxury and Fashion Management (M.A.)

Master's Degree in Business Management with specialisation in Luxury and Fashion Management

Everybody knows them: Brands like Prada, Chanel, Porsche or Rolex stand for luxury and high fashion. They have a cult character and have developed over the years into symbols of style and beauty, technology, success or wealth and are well known and sought after worldwide - across all language and cultural boundaries.

Strong brands stand for quality and, especially in times when imitators are on the rise, are a decisive factor when it comes to purchasing decisions and customer loyalty. Today, premium brands are no longer reserved only for the high society, but address broad sections of the population, can be found in department stores as well as exquisite boutiques and generate sales in the millions. Particularly in the fashion sector, more and more renowned brands are establishing their own young fashion labels, relying on a digital presence in fashion blogs, cooperating with the stars of the YouTube scene, investing in a digital fan base and thus conquering young target groups.

As a luxury and fashion manager, you will cultivate brands with special appeal or build new brands in the luxury and fashion segment with strategic skill. Experience how a brand can be successfully showcased at fashion shows and congresses, global trade fairs for luxury products such as jewellery and watches, as well as with sponsoring, product placement and digital media. Work in a team with the leading professionals in their field, be it creative people, VIPs from show business, marketers or management representatives. Macromedia's state-approved and accredited Master's degree in Business Management with a specialisation in Luxury and Fashion Management prepares you for a leading role in the international luxury and fashion world.

  

Content of the Luxury and Fashion Management specialisation

Are you fascinated by the products, media and target groups of the premium market segment? In this Master's programme, you will develop a deeper understanding of the characteristics and laws that distinguish the fashion, jewellery, cosmetics and high-end automotive industries from other sectors and how to lead such companies to success.
 
The Master's specialisation in Luxury and Fashion Management is offered within the Master's in Business programme at the Munich and Berlin campuses of our university. Course modules include:
  • Marketing Strategy
  • Brands and Branding
  • Focus Project
  • Luxury and Fashion Business
 
 

On the basis of sound knowledge of the market economy and corporate management, you will acquire specialist knowledge on the global consumer behaviour of customers in various luxury goods and fashion markets, on production and location policy and on the successful communication of offers. The course highlights both management processes between participating companies (B-to-B) and between companies and consumers (B-to-C).
By distributing the lessons over 2-3 days per week (e.g., Thursday, Friday, Saturday), the studies at the Munich and Berlin campuses offer many students a good opportunity to study alongside their careers. Our student advisory service will be happy to advise you.
