The Luxury Industry is not something that gets affected by the everyday humdrum of commercial squabbles. Despite the global economic slowdown, Luxury is one industry which has been recession proof!! In India, it is no different where it has grown constantly @ 20% per annum for past several years and is today estimated to be at almost 12 billion USD. Projections estimate the size to soon touch $15 billion .
Unlike popular perception, luxury today is not just limited to fashion, but has penetrated almost every sphere of lifestyle. Be it fine dining, automobiles, aviation, branded residences, travel, tourism, health & fitness, watches, jewellery, spa’s or even medical, banking, concierge services, luxury is visible everywhere.
Luxury needs a typical employee who has a fine eye for detail and is essentially service oriented. To be able to handle the needs of the affluent consumer, a special training and education is required.
AT Kearney & KPMG -research figures show that the Luxury industry faces an acute shortage of skilled talent. It is also estimated that the industry would need some 1.7 m people by 2022.
To meet this rising demand Luxury Connect Business School (LCBS), India’s first and only luxury B-School has joined hands with International University of Monaco (IUM), the world leader in Luxury Education to launch Diploma Programs in Luxury Management. The two programs, Post Graduate Diploma in Luxury Management and Executive Diploma in Luxury Management are designed in a manner that the student spends 30% of his academic time at the IUM campus. Here, the student gets an opportunity to be at the hub of luxury.
Additionally, LCBS is the only institute to provide specialised skills in ‘Customer Service & Experience Culture’ via a specially designed diploma program.
The USP of LCBS revolves around ‘by the Industry – for the industry – delivered by the industry’. All programs will be delivered by industry experts and stalwarts where in the students have an opportunity to learn from real time experience. If that isn’t enough to convince a student, the programs cost less than half of what a comparative program abroad would cost!
Founded by Abhay Gupta, an industry veteran, all the programs at LCBS are officially endorsed by fondazione-altagamma, the head of all luxury brands!
