Global Luxury Management Class of 2015
Women Ready-to-Wear Junior Product Manager, Louis Vuitton – Paris, France

“I was very keen to do this program because of the dual degree (NC State and SKEMA), the semester abroad (in the US for me), the opportunity to learn more about the fashion and luxury industry and to meet many professionals.

I was not disappointed! My first semester in the GLM program at NC State was amazing. I was a student in a prestigious American university, I met people who are now great friends, professors and career management people were very available for us, we had great courses and had the opportunity to network with many professionals. I travelled a lot in the United States and always tried to go to events related to the industry, to visit boutiques and showrooms and to meet people.

In France, at SKEMA, we had great classes lead by professionals working for luxury companies. We were well prepared to face interviews for internships.

Finally, I found a very interesting internship as women’s ready-to-wear assistant in Louis Vuitton, which led to my current position as product manager. I am happy to work for this great company in Paris, part of the LVMH luxury group.”
