Italian Brands & Luxury Certificate 

The Italian experience 
This certificate is focused on the critical success factors of the Italian fashion and luxury sector, an area where Italians have faced the challenges posed by globalization and recurring economic crises by optimizing product portfolios, shifting into new markets and increasing the perceived value of customer service. 

Labs of creativity and design will be combined with classes, in-company visits and guest speakers lectures aimed to provide an exclusive educational program deep inside the fashion and luxury Made in Italy, which covers a huge variety of products, from textiles, haute couture, shoes and jewelry to yachts, cars, home furniture, food, hospitality and tourism services.
