French Savoir-Faire to Succeed in the International Luxury Market
Whoever does not visit Paris regularly will never really be elegant.” – Honoré de Balzac.
France is clearly a world leader in all things luxury which makes the Luxury Brand Communication program a perfect fit for the INSEEC School of Communications with its Paris location and its connections with industry professionals. This city is the perfect place to learn about the luxury market through specialmized courses and projects as well as visits.
This program trains students to define a corporate business strategy and to coordinate the implementation of marketing and communication actions using the specific codes of the luxury sector. Recruiters are thrilled that our graduates have mastered, by the end of this program, the codes and specific tools used across all luxury brand markets.This 5th year program is the first step into the world of luxury. It explores various topics such as brand management, product development, media and strategic planning, digital marketing, public relations, merchandising, event planning through the lens of luxury brands. There is a strong focus on fashion, fashion accessories, and watches, with courses dedicated to the luxury hotels sector as well. Other topics include design, wellness and of course the food industry (wine and champagne).
This program taught completely in English is delivered by professionals working in the luxury field both in France and abroad which allows our students a behind-the-scenes view of the luxury workplace while at the same time building their professional networks.

September until the end of January followed by an internship in a company and a professional project, for which students present an oral defense before a jury the following September. Students have the option to complete their work experience in one of two ways. They may complete a 6-month internship anywhere in the world (with the possibility of an ERASMUS+ grant for those who stay in Europe outside of France), or sign an alternating work-study contract with a company (alternance).
The goal of the professional project is to write a business plan and start a real company or product in the communication and digital sectors. Students working in teams of two or three defend their project before a jury of professionals. The best projects have the opportunity to receive support from the INSEEC Group’s Company Incubator program.

The advantages of the program
At the end of the 5th year, the students must defend before a committee, a Professional Personal Project in order to graduate whether they studied in France or abroad. The professional project is the creation of a new start-up business with students working in groups of 3 or 4. Whether the business is a new product or service, this exercise encourages students to develop their managerial, financial skills as well as the knowledge of business law, Sup de Pub encourages its students to embark on the entrepreneurial adventure. At the end of SP5, the best professional projects benefit from one year of hosting within the INSEEC Group’s business incubator and two other specialist incubators.
One of our students’ favourite moments of the school year is the final competition. Sup de Pub wanted to find a way to closely approximate the experience of working in an agency to allow our students to develop their professionalism. For more than a week, students, working in interdisciplinary groups, work on a practical case presented by a large advertiser or a large agency, to answer a specific strategic, marketing or creative problem. Creative students, strategists, PR, media and digital specialists all work together with the goal of using their various skills to create a real solution of professional quality. Many students have found internships with the presenting agencies or advertisers because of the impression they have made during the competitions.
