On March 31st, the Career and Alumni Center and the Post Graduate departments of IFA Paris organized a MBA Students & Alumni get together party to celebrate the end of the studies in Shanghai before moving to Paris campus.

In a trendy wine bar in Shanghai, our current MBA Luxury Brand Management students had the opportunity to meet each other and talk with IFA elite alumni and our Managing Director Ms. Olivia Chai and IFA Group Chairman, Mr. Patrick Kouzmine-Karavaieff face to face.

“It was IFA opening a door for me to a real fashion and business world.” said Yu Long (2012 Luxury Brand Management graduate), current Retail Manager at Peuterey, GEOSPIRIT Shanghai. “The longer I work the more practical and precious I feel about the knowledge I learned from IFA during the 15-month MBA period” said Fiona Shang, graduated in 2012 from the program of Luxury Brand Management and current Senior Account Manager at Digital Luxury Group. Adile Cretallaz and Mahmoud El Salahy

While our 2013 alumni of the MBA Luxury Brand Management Mahmoud El Salahy has a very busy schedule, he also managed to free up some time and joined the party which was much appreciated by everybody. He obtained a job during his study in IFA and now he is the Director of The North Face China (Mahmoud has a fascinating story, his interview will be published shortly on our website). Thanks to him, we will launch a project for our undergraduate students to work with The North Face.  Mahmoud El Salahy told us that studying in IFA shanghai was one of the best choices that he has ever made.

After friendly and animated debates about luxury brands and their strategies, students from the MBA Luxury Brand Management Program were ready to move to the next stage of their studies at IFA Paris in Paris with new information and real life experiences.

We wish them the best of luck for the rest of their studies and hope to see them again in future events during which it will be their turn to share their experiences. Farewell!
