This course explores the specifics of marketing in the luxury sector. Since brands are intangible assets, creating and nurturing a strong brand is a challenge. This is particularly true with luxury goods and on international markets, where brand identity and image can have a dramatic impact on purchasing decisions. The course provides an overview of luxury brand management, ranging from history to brand equity issues and delivers a set of tools used by managers for effective luxury brand management. Finally, the course focuses on the industry´s challenges from a societal perspective and discusses luxury marketing ethical issues.
