Develop the creative and business skills necessary for success in the luxury industry - one of the fastest growing areas of global business. One of just a few courses of its kind in the UK, the MA Luxury Brand Management offers the opportunity to learn from academics with extensive industry experience.

Studying in a creative art school environment, you'll learn about brand design and management in a range of premium industries, from fashion and perfume to yachts and automobiles. You'll also gain an understanding of the evolution of the luxury market and contemporary debates in the field, informed by world-class research. In-depth study for your final project will allow you to become a specialist in an area of luxury that interests you.
