The story of the Academy of Luxury

Developing talent for companies serving customers in the premium and ultrapremium sectors to immerse themselves in the world of luxury and our ecosystem, traveling through métiers and each step of the value chain.


ESSEC is a global business school with deep French roots, established itself uniquely in understanding the high-net-worth mindset, the secret to brand desirability, and the business of luxury for more than three decades.

In 1991, ESSEC had the privilege of jointly creating a research Chair with LVMH which still runs today as the longest-standing program worldwide, dedicated to training young talent for careers in the luxury industry.

The birth of the ESSEC Academy of Luxury in Asia Pacific is founded upon our rich heritage in luxury management research, knowledge and insights blended with academic excellence. The Academy is uniquely focused on developing talent and creating a forum of expertise and exchange in the Asia-Pacific region in the practices of luxury management.

The first of its kind program in Asia is the Professional Certificate in Luxury Management, designed to empower professionals tasked to build lasting customer relationships with luxury customers or premiumize their brands or product/service offerings. The programs from the Academy of Luxury help to demystify and decode what makes premium brands truly successful and how to build sustainable relationships with high-net-worth individuals.
