Luxury Marketing SpecializationThe specialization in luxury marketing allows students to develop the perspective and skills necessary to pursue careers in the luxury sector. This is an important part of the economy, both in the US and worldwide. Marketing luxury products and services presents a number of unique challenges including the nature of the target market, importance of establishing a strong relationship with customers, the critical role of brand image, and the nature of the distribution system. This specialization offers a wide range of courses, including the Doing Business in Italy, which takes place in Milan during Spring Break and provides students with exposure to the high fashion and luxury industry in one of the fashion capitals of Europe. Luxury industry companies who have hired Stern graduates recently include Louis Vuitton, Bloomingdale's, Chanel, Coach, Hermès, and Tiffany.
