The Elle brand is joining forces with MIT, one of the most prestigious universities in the world and the esteemed Complutense University in Madrid, to offer students the Elle International Fashion & Luxury Management Program.

The program is divided into four modules that will take place in Madrid, Paris, New York, and MIT Sloan's campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The first unit in Madrid in December will focus on Fast Fashion, the Paris module will look at Haute Couture & Luxury while students heading to New York for the third course unit in mid-May 2018 will study Premium Brands, and finally Innovation is the basis of the module at the fourth module, to be held at the MIT Campus at the end of May.

The program's modular structure aims to provide a flexible and dynamic academic setting where participants can broaden their understanding of the fashion and luxury industry and acquire frameworks to face today's business challenges.

Prospective students can check admissions requirements, and send their applications for the course, which starts in November (ending in May 2018) via Elle's dedicated website: http://fashionluxuryprogram.elle.fr

What's so special about this new diploma that is stamped with Elle's fashion-savvy seal of approval? It distinguishes itself by its business approach and the variety of formats it offers, including online sessions taught by renowned MIT Sloan and Complutense professors, with the option of on-site courses in the United States (Boston, New York) and/or in Europe (Paris, Madrid).

In addition to classes, students will be able to participate in discussions, panels, round-tables and debates with leaders of the Fashion and Luxury industry. 

French business daily Les Echos reported that course fees are to range between €16 000 and €25 000, depending on the number of optional modules students choose on enrolling.

On successfully completing the program, students will receive an MIT Sloan Executive Education certificate in collaboration with Complutense.
