MBA Entrepreneurship and Luxury Management

The MBA Entrepreneurship and Luxury Management, developed in partnership between Sup de Luxe and EDC Paris Business School (French leader in entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship for 70 years), is aimed at :

  • Those who want to acquire strong business creation and management skills in the Premium and Luxury sector,
  • Those who want to start or take over a business in the sector
  • Those who wish to become familiar with and develop innovative projects in this sector

Each step in the creation of a brand/project gives rise to a working seminar based on the validation and application of concepts.


The title Manager in Marketing and Sales of Luxury Products Level I, issued under the authority of ED Sup de Luxe, code NSF 312m, is registered with the RNCP by ministerial decree of 27/12/2018, published in the OJ of 4 January 2019, subject to validation of the different blocks of skills.



The Luxury Goods sector is undergoing profound changes. Alongside the historical brands and Houses that make France and Paris their cradle, companies are being created and developed that bring the pleasure, service and identity that women and men are looking for.

Innovation is the key word. The luxury object has always been a creation. This creation must be accompanied by the right service and the right adequacy to the time. Above all, it must bring an extra soul to its buyer. In this sense, anything is possible. An entrepreneur in this sector must be creative, rigorous, tenacious and lucid.

They must be able to identify opportunities to develop his business, lead a project and often a team, create value and consequently employment and he must learn to innovate and take measured risks.



Assistance in the development of an entrepreneurial project.
Sup de Luxe has created Incubalux', an incubator specialising in innovation and creation in the luxury sector, which has set itself the task of supporting two or three selected projects each year.
