"Unlike most classrooms where students have their own desk, through ESSEC Executive Education, you are put around tables where real business happens. Whether it be for a new line, next season, or vintage, ESSEC curates an experience efficient in its schedule yet impactful in its exposure. The businesses that participate are both proud and happy to share insightful information with interested students. You will interact closely with those who are both experts in their field and passionate about their work. The program is not boring office lectures - visits to design and production facilities create a greater context to study the business of luxury brand management. If considering a study abroad program, know this: ESSEC is worth the trip!"
