This summer program is a unique opportunity to experience a team-based and interdisciplinary project in Paris. Across three weeks, you will hone your leadership abilities by exploring, prototyping, and communicating about a world-changing innovation opportunity. The program supports your journey with a mix of weekly workshops, hands-on coaching sessions and real-world visits. Each week, you will engage in activities that will help move your team project forward and at the end of the program each team will have the opportunity to present their business idea.
The objective is to use online tools and available data in order to build models and simulations that will help students explore and validate new business ideas in a risk-free environment. These models will serve as guidelines when putting strategies into action in a creative and fun way.
The critical elements of a business plan will be explained in detail to participants and many types of financing will be discussed. Participants will also be informed on how loans are assessed, and will be provided with tangible examples of common reasons why loans are refused.
Before discussing luxury management, we need to understand what luxury actually is. What is its history and its environment ? We will then address the specific strategies of this diversified sector and how it needs to meet the challenges of tomorrow. The course will also provide a solid foundation in management, applied to the fashion sector: marketing, strategic and operational approach. It will allow students to better understand and make use of the value of a brand, while also providing a solid comprehension of creation: culture of fashion, culture of design and an overall understanding of the creative process. This course will include specific visits such as Musée du Parfum, the new Saint Laurent Museum (and maybe temporary exhibitions or fairs, according to the schedule).
Museums, art galleries, theaters, opera houses are all institutions. As such, they are legal entities who need to meet legal, economical and organizational requirements to exist and operate within society (just like entertainment companies). Art management’s role is to help art institutions, both for-profit and non-profit, meet those requirements. Besides, art institutions often face budget and technical constraints that will also be discussed in this course. The course will include 1 or 2 visits of the most important exhibitions of the moment according to the schedule.
