Master in Luxury Management

Master's program Luxury Management and Customer Experience – The Italian Excellence

The Master's program in Luxury Management and Customer Experience – Italian Excellence, in partnership between POLIMI Graduate School of Management and John Cabot University, is a full-time 12-month program, at the end of which you’ll get an Italian Master diploma (Master di I livello) from Politecnico di Milano, and a Professional and Continuing Education Certificate from JCU.

The building hosting the JCU Center for Graduate Studies and Luxury Management classes dates back to 1495. It was built as a home for Cardinal Alessandro Farnese, the future Pope Paul III. In the first half of the 19th century, it passed on to the powerful Bourbon family. Since 1934 it has been part of the adjacent Accademia dei Lincei, the oldest academy in the world dedicated to the study of the humanities and natural sciences. Galileo Galilei, Enrico Fermi and Vito Volterra were among its members.
