On Monday January 9th, 26 students from MSc in Luxury Management & Marketing from emlyon business school who are currently spending 3 months in NYC at Parsons Design School, had the chance to meet with former emlyon students who now work in the luxury business.
Each of those alumni talked about their professional experiences (among them Hermes, Marc Jacobs, Atelier Tamalets, Ligne Roset): from the moment they graduated from emlyon business school to the moment they started their professional life and how they got to work in NY. They also exchanged on logistic issues (visa questions), work environment (salary and lifestyle in NY) and cultural differences (French vs American)…
Students were curious and asked questions and personal feedback. It was a very interesting exchange and a lot of precious information were shared.
We would like to thank both the students and alumni who participated in this gathering, as well as Professor Michel Phan, for coordinating this opportunity.
We hope to see many of you at our next event, scheduled on January 22nd in NYC: Business talk - WORKING IN DIGITAL WORLD: How to be present in a digitized world while protecting its information?
