New York’s Program
In the luxury market, selling a lifestyle and tapping into the aspirations of consumers is a motivation to buy often as significant as product innovation and quality. As a result, communication has long been a fundamental cornerstone of any luxury business. Marketing luxury products and services presents a number of unique challenges, including the nature of the target market, the importance of establishing a strong relationship with customers, the critical role of brand image and the nature of the distribution system.
Where once luxury marketing focused on print media and unilateral broadcasts by a brand, today it seeks to create a dialogue between brand and consumer. Traditional media, remain in effect, but the digital and non-media strategies such as sponsoring and events have developed significantly. Confronted with these changes and new technologies, the luxury industry is developing new strategies, in terms of digital, connected objects or experiential merchandising.
This new program developed by Sup de Pub and the ESCE aims to cover all the communication aspects of luxury sector to allow our students to fully understand the evolving luxury market, our program covers a diverse array of topics including: American Luxury Markets, Creative Communication, Digital Marketing, Entrepreneurship and Leadership Skills with specific focus on their application in the luxury sector; particularly in the areas of fashion and the arts.
Students will study at our partner Baruch College in the Flatiron District of midtown Manhattan from September until December. Students will also benefit from guest speakers, panel discussions and company visits as well as networking events permitting them to enter the job market with the knowledge to conquer the luxury market.
Thanks to our partner Baruch College, students will also benefit from a visa which grants them the possibility to complete a 3-month internship in the USA without the hassle and cost of an additional visa. This opportunity is an excellent stepping stone for our students who wish to continue their careers in the US; allowing them to broaden their professional network.
The capstone project for this program is a professional project.

Brand manager is a fairly new profession.

Closely connected to the marketing department, the brand manager can be a freelance or an employee of the company.
As the term luxury encompasses many areas, so does the term trend researcher. Brands are supported by teams that scrutinize, analyze and identify trends and innovations. The goal ? Position yourself in fashionable niches, good materials, good colors, good shapes, etc. This applies in many branches of luxury from for ready-to- wear to luxury furniture or even watches or hotel or gourmet products.
As a Sales Manager, you manage the development of sales as well as products for your media sector (online, digital, magazines…). In terms of sales you are responsible for the growth and development of our customers in the top segments of different sectors. Your mission is to expand the existing customers base and build new relationships. It is also crucial to think about the development of new products. It is the job of the sales manager to question the status quo and identify new opportunities. To achieve this goal you create targeted communication and marketing solutions.

The marketing director guarantees that company’s position by using the functional areas of marketing: strategy, product / brand, operational, etc.)
« L’une de mes missions chez Cartier est la mise en place et le déploiement de la stratégie « owned media » sur les sites Cartier et sur les réseaux sociaux. J’interviens en tant que coordinateur digital au sein du département Communication auprès des différents départements et en étroite collaboration avec les filiales. J’ai appris les bases de mon métier à Sup de Pub, et surtout j’ai pu trouver des stages qui m’ont permis d’être rapidement opérationnel. »

« Après être passé par Publicis Conseil, je m’occupe aujourd’hui de la conception-rédaction pour le Département Luxe pour les comptes Lancôme et Cartier. Mon Master 2 à Sup de Pub a été un véritable tremplin pour intégrer les agences de publicité, en grande partie grâce à un rythme d’alternance qui laisse une large place à la professionnalisation et l’intégration dans l’entreprise. »
