Luxury Retail represents a wide variety of fashion, lifestyle, and beauty companies within the luxury and retail sector. The functions/positions that MBAs recruit into range from strategy, merchandising, finance, marketing, brand management, operations, planning, and buying. Most of the formal aspects of recruiting and interviews happen in the spring, so the fall is spent networking with alumni and industry contacts. Some of the larger more established beauty companies have corporate presentations during the fall but if you are looking to go to a boutique firm it is important to build your network during this time. Examples of select employers of Stern MBAs include Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Marc Jacobs, LVMH, Victoria’s Secret, Oscar de la Renta, Chanel, Macy’s, and Bloomingdale’s. There are several resources available such as job postings through OCD, the strong alumni network within the industry, and the weekly luxury retail newsletter that includes additional job postings. Additionally, the Luxury Retail club hosts an annual conference in the fall with luxury retail industry leaders, and Career Services hosts a spring career fair.
