SP Jain School of Global Management (SP Jain), known worldwide for its top-ranked Global MBA program, has recorded successful internships for 40% of its Master in Global Luxury Goods and Services Management (MGLuxM) Class of 2019/20. What is noteworthy is that students haven’t even graduated.
The MGLuxM programme is a Partnership Programme between SP Jain School of Global Management, Mumbai, and MIP Politecnico Di Milano, Milan, Italy (ranked #1 in Europe for Luxury Management). Students get an amazing experience by first learning about the Indian luxury sector, and then receiving exposure to European luxury in the capital of luxury and fashion, Milan. The school also organises study tours/field visits to other European cities such as Paris, Champagne, Geneva, Neuchatel, La Chaux de Fonds and Florence, in addition to classroom sessions.
The top recruiters for the MGLuxm programme includes companies from various sectors such as Beauty (25%), Consulting (25%), Jewellery (20%), Real Estate & Home Décor (10%), Fashion & Retail (10%), Accessories (5%) and Wines & Spirits (5%). The Sales & Marketing profile was most recruited for, and students also secured internships in other roles and profiles like content writing, PR, Research Analyst and Business Development. SP Jain Global has a strong association with industry leaders such as Reliance Brands Limited, Estée Lauder Companies, Sotheby’s International Realty, Mercedes- Benz, Gucci, Brindco Pvt Ltd, Outhouse, Audi India, Amrapali, Diageo, Nykaa, as well as emerging brands like Mahesh Punjabi Associates, Luxury Abode, Luxury Ampersand Frolics, Mitesh Lodha, amongst many others, that propel successful campus recruitment drives for the school’s student talent pool.
Ms. Smita Jain, Director – MGLuxM, SP Jain School of Global Management, said, “The MGLuxM programme is an amalgamation of two different worlds of luxury – India & Italy. Through our programme, we constantly challenge our students to dive back to the origins of the luxury environment and understand how it all began; appreciate the technological evolution and the future of luxury, and learn how to spot emerging trends and stay ahead of the curve. Our keyword for luxury is desire – the desire to attain greater heights through limitless possibilities – and this is exactly what our students experience during the Master in Global Luxury Goods & Services Management Programme (MGLuxM) at SP Jain School of Global Management, Mumbai & MIP Politecnico di Milano, Italy. The triumph of our endeavours is amply borne out by the success of our Class of 2019 in garnering prestigious internship opportunities with leading luxury companies.”
MGLuxm is an intense, full-time twelve-month Master’s degree programme. During the three semesters, students spend 6 months in India (Mumbai), 4 months in Italy (Milan) and the last 2 months in either Milan or Mumbai, for a live Industry project as part of their final dissertation. The programme includes all the essential learning required for succeeding in a managerial role, and facilitates a thorough understanding of various luxury domains such as automobiles, beauty, fashion, jewellery, watches, consulting, CRM and other high-end services. On successful completion of the programme, graduating students are awarded the 1st level Specializing Master in Global Luxury Goods and Services Management certification from Politecnico di Milano.
