What’s a luxury industry role? Like a luxury fashion brand?

M1, great question. There really isn’t a typical post MBA role, which is what makes breaking in so tough - a lot of it is based on networking really heavily and lucking out with a Manager or Senior Manager level role that is aligned with your skills, as most companies don’t necessarily look for MBAs in particular.

Congrats! Is it true that these luxury places pay less than market rate due to the privilege of working there? I’ve heard rumors of that from my bschool classmates but was never able to verify.

Gotcha, that’s interesting. Sounds super cool for her!

Are you independently wealthy? I’ve known a few people that have gone down the luxury path and they’ve all said the pay was well below market. Curious to know what your long term plans are. I think experience in this realm would help setup for some type of e-commerce / niche brand.

Yeah for sure!
