About the Program

Overview

This degree offers an innovative, creative approach to the rapidly evolving luxury industry – taking a strategic view of the characteristics and opportunities within luxury goods, events and services.

This practical approach will help you develop the knowledge and skills you need to deliver a variety of exceptional consumer experiences across a range of sectors – and gain a global, competitive, advantage.

Hands-on projects will give you the insights and skills to make informed judgements about the strategic and tactical business activities of luxury brands – and guest lectures will enable you to learn first-hand from industry experts, who will introduce you to new insights, opportunities and careers.

Our academics have extensive experience across a wide range of industries – and their knowledge ensures your studies reflect current industry standards and practices.

This course is accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). If you join the Institute as a student member, and complete the mapped modules, you'll receive a Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Management and Leadership Practice upon completion.

This course will equip you with the specialist knowledge and skills to pursue a career in fields such as luxury brand management, marketing, communications and retail.

Teaching and assessment

As a small university, we centre our teaching around your individual goals – identifying the skills and support you need to thrive.

Small, interactive classes (of 20 students or less) ensure you have a high level of contact with your tutors, enabling you to develop your individual strengths and interests.

Teaching staff

Learn from staff who combine strong academic credentials with deep experience of the luxury industry (from hospitality to fashion, PR, and marketing), offering insights into the latest trends and the chance to apply your learning practically.

Also attend regular guest lectures with industry professionals (from luxury cars to wine, fashion, perfume and more) – networking and developing partnerships with brands, PRs, CEOs and more. Regent's alumni also return to help mentor students and share their experiences.

You’ll also be assigned a personal tutor who’ll help you to build a bespoke programme that reflects your passions and future career.

Practical learning

Engage in authentic experiences that encourage collaboration and self-expression: learning through hands-on tasks such as debates, discussions, role plays, simulations, group projects and workshops, designed to help you develop skills including critical thinking, problem-solving and decision-making.

And take field trips and join work placements to put your learning in context – building your professional network and gaining a competitive edge.

Contact hours and expected workload

In terms 1 and 2, you'll have around 20 contact hours per week (per 20 credit module) and around 10 hours per week (per 10 credit module). In term 3, you'll produce your dissertation – a 60 credit module. While you'll be expected to manage your time, you'll likely spend around 600 learning hours on this project.

Assessment

  • Blog contributions
  • Coursework assignments
