Overview

MA Luxury Brand Management takes a strategic view of the dynamic characteristics and opportunities within the global luxury goods and services industry, providing you with the skills, knowledge and connections to lead and succeed in the competitive world of luxury brands.

The luxury industry has evolved rapidly over the last decade, with brands expanding and consolidating into mature and fast-developing markets.

Successful professionals in this field demonstrate the ability to operate in a highly complex global market. An innovative and creative approach with a strong cultural perspective is critical.

We combine academic study with the practicalities of management, with a particular focus on delivering exceptional experiences for consumers and gaining global competitive advantage.

Regent’s is the perfect place to study luxury. Our campus in royal Regent’s Park is set in 11 acres of private gardens, where many of the most famous luxury brands will be on your doorstep.

London is one of the world capitals for the luxury industry. Studying in the heart of the city is the ideal way to develop the advanced skills that are essential in managing top brands in an increasingly competitive environment, whilst exploring new cultural perspectives and developing the habits of innovation.

Regent’s has the most international student body in the UK. We specialise in nurturing the intercultural intelligence you need to succeed, and our mission is to develop tomorrow’s global leaders.

As you would expect from Regent’s, the programme is taught in small classes by highly qualified academics and experienced industry professionals. We cover luxury branding and management across the full value chain.
