THE BEAUTY OF EMBRACING NEW PERSPECTIVES

Master's Degree in Economics and International Management - Luxury, Made in Italy and Emerging Markets Curriculum

Luxury goods are experiencing a significant increase in sales, and, interestingly, Italy produces 41% of Europe's luxury goods. It is with this context in mind that the Master's Degree Programme in Economics and International Management – Luxury, Made in Italy and Emerging Markets Curriculum prepares students for a career as managers or marketing specialists working in companies operating in the luxury and Made in Italy industries. Students acquire an in-depth knowledge of top-line products typical of the Italian economic system and of the opportunities created by emerging markets and globalisation. Language barriers are inevitably a significant factor when entering international markets. Conducting business in the buyer's tongue can be crucial to creating and establishing mutual confidence on which to ground solid business relations, and is unquestionably so when entering emerging markets possibly working on different cultural and rhetorical models. To address the gaps in trade export skills, UNINT students can: (1) attend all the courses taught in English; (2) learn a second language from among those spoken in the fastest-growing markets and (3) apply for a Double Master's Degree Programme (fully taught in English). Students are also offered the chance to attend lectures, seminars and conferences on the latest developments in emerging market trends and luxury goods sales. Furthermore, the Curriculum offers them the opportunity to participate in a Made in Italy Lab, to apply for an internship in Made in Italy companies, or to study abroad at partner universities such as the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, located in Los Angeles.
