The structure of the Master's Degree Programme in Economics and International Management – Curriculum in Luxury, Made in Italy and Global Markets has been defined analysing the employment opportunities arising from the following phenomena:

  • the high international vocation of Italian companies: according to last ICE-ISTAT report, in 2021 exports of Made in Italy increased by 19,2% exceeding the pre-pandemic level. Italy ranks 3rd after China and Germany if only exports of consumer goods are taken into account.
  • Italy's position of leadership in terms of production of luxury goods: in Italy, the luxury industry generates approximately 115 billion euros. As noted by Deloitte "Global powers of luxury goods" report, our country is the world leader in terms of number of manufacturing companies. 
  • the strong appeal of Made in Italy brands on global luxury consumers: according to the "True-luxury global consumer insight" survey conducted by the Boston Consulting Group on behalf of Altagamma on a representative sample of 18.5 million global luxury consumers, Made in Italy brands rank first in millennials and Chinese consumers’ preferences;

This Course is particularly suitable for students with a Bachelor’s Degree in languages, economics, cultural mediation. Target students should also be willing to contribute to the international development of our country's products and top-line sectors. In the next years, the highest share of demand for luxury goods is expected to come from global markets. They are therefore deeply analysed. Ideal students: have a strong vocation for intercultural communication; are predisposed to understanding the differences in tastes, choice criteria and purchasing behaviours that characterize foreign consumers; are interested in gaining a deep understanding of top-line industries and of the managerial characteristics featuring the Made in Italy system.
