Practice Lab | In partnership with Giorgio Armani
Rome Business School Practice Lab is the place where theoretical concepts are put in practice and participants learn through experience. The Lab is run by managers from leading national or international companies in the sector/industry, who will examine different specialist knowledge, work on exercises and network, while sharing their experience and expertise with the students. The Lab is entirely run by the School’s Partner Companies and the activities included are specific for each Master program and goal.
The Practice Lab consists of 3 main phases:
Phase 1 | Manager Meet-Ups
Students meet two managers from the Partner Company, from different areas or divisions, such as finance and marketing, who share their experience of their day-to-day work and business, with a specific and relevant focus for the Master in Luxury and Fashion Management.
Phase 2 | Hands-on Class
Students gain first-hand insight from the direct experience of company managers, enhancing the knowledge and skillset acquired on the Master. They will analyze, assess, create and develop, a certain plan or strategy given by the company in relation to what they have studied in class and the company’s business operations.
Phase 3 | Get on Task
The company managers present two in-class business scenarios (business cases), so that, by implementing the concepts learned, the students find solutions and create strategies. At the end of the class, they orally present the final results and ideas.
Company Shadowing | Full Time Exclusive
A process in which a student observes a professional for a short period of time, such as a day or few hours, to get a better understanding of the job position and insight into the company department/division.
Students will get a first-hand insight into the reality of business life, rather than a theoretical version of a specific job position or working environment. For a few hours, they will observe the day-to-day tasks of a professional and learn from a person who has experience in the field. They will also be given a tour of the workplace and take part in a Q&A session at the end of the day. Only high-performing students will get the chance to take part in Company Shadowing.
At the end of your educational experience, you will have the chance to prove your abilities by tackling a real business challenge. Use your talent to identify opportunities and create a truly innovative strategy.
Tackle a real company challenge. You can choose to be part of a small team and design an innovative HR business plan or functional operational plan based on theoretical research.
Work on one of two real Business Challenges of a specific company. Choose between a Business Plan, or a Fashion project.
