“I have the pleasure to inform you that I have obtained and accepted an offer with one of Walpole's corporate partners, Chalhoub Group in Dubai… This wouldn't have been possible if it weren't for the LBS & Walpole collaboration that brought to life the Management in Luxury Programme… I cannot but express my gratitude for giving me and my classmates such an opportunity.”

Aya Hasbini, class of 2013/14

Walpole, the unique alliance of Britain’s finest luxury brands including Burberry, Jimmy Choo, Claridge’s, Harrods, Alexander McQueen and Smythson, has once again joined forces with London Business School to nurture the next generation of luxury leaders.

The programme will develop a select group of students aiming to take up management positions in the luxury industry. Walpole member companies and their senior executives will provide the opportunity for students to gain real experience in successful luxury brands.

Students will be assigned a mentor – a senior executive from within the Walpole membership of 160 luxury brands – and will undertake a rigorous foundation of academic learning and professional development on workshops such as Marketing, Retail and E-tail, Branding and the Creative Process.

Applications for the programme will open on Career Central on 22nd October and will close on 29th October 2014.

If you are successful in being shortlisted, you will be invited to an interview on 13th November.  

We look forward to receiving your application!
