Strategy& would like to invite you to our business course “A lens on luxury” in Milan. Together, you and the other business course participants will embark on a unique adventure and rethink the strategy of an iconic luxury brand. This business course will provide you with an excellent opportunity to gain an inside perspective on what it means to work at Strategy&.

Experience the capital of luxury goods: Milan

On the first day, Tuesday 14 May, we will set off for the capital of luxury goods: Milan. During our stay in Milan, you will build the future strategy of an iconic luxury brand (the client) and will have the opportunity to perform store visits and interact directly with the client! This gives you the excellent opportunity to familiarize yourself with the way of working in strategy consulting. Needless to say, there will be plenty of time to get to know our consultants while enjoying the beautiful city of Milan!

On Thursday afternoon, we will head back to Amsterdam and have a dinner and club night with the entire Amsterdam office, giving you an insight into our company culture. On Friday you will finalize the case and present your results to a group of industry experts.

Throughout the business course, you will be coached by our experienced consultants during your case work. This will include numerous feedback sessions that contribute to your personal development. You will become familiar with our approach and working style, and learn about the day-to-day responsibilities and challenges of our consultants along the way.

We are looking for talented Master’s students in the final stage of their studies from all academic backgrounds and universities. Dutch language is required.

Selected participants for the business course will not only have a marvelous strategy consulting experience, but will also get the opportunity to be ‘fast-tracked’ during the formal hiring process for an Associate position at Strategy&.
