Lionel Meyer, director of the INSEEC Luxury Institute programs, talks about the new bac+3 specialization “Retailing du Luxe”, which will open at the INSEEC Bachelor in September 2016.
Luxury does not mean “glitter”. This work-study bachelor’s degree aims to train future experts in the field.
In the luxury market, we essentially talk about luxury retailing, in other words, how to get in touch with picky customers. If we had to summarize luxury retailing in 5 words: authenticity, passion, observation, consistency, and patience.
In the luxury goods sector, the ABC’s are acquired through customer relations and the sales act.
Luxury retailing: a demanding sector
First of all, in the world of luxury, whether you are in France or not, the clients are varied and international. It is therefore mandatory to have a good command of English and to know another language.
