The morning started with a guided tour of the L’Oréal Headquarters, during which participants were encouraged to envision a typical workday at L’Oréal as they walked through lush gardens with iconic art pieces, peeked inside labs and explored fitness rooms.
MBA in Luxury Brand Management participant's visit to L’Oréal Luxe
Building on the long-standing partnership between ESSEC Business School’s GMBA in Luxury Brand Management and L’Oréal Luxe that has been in effect since the very founding of the MBA in 1995, the participants of this year’s cohort were invited to the L’Oréal headquarters in Clichy for a morning of discovery and discussion animated by Isabelle Minneci, Global VP HR, Manuela Pardini, Global Talent Acquisition Director and Marta Bianco, Global Talent Acquisition Manager.
It goes without saying that the cohort was left feeling impressed by the historic yet modern headquarters and inspired by L’Oréal Group’s commitment to creating a dynamic and desirable place to work.
Then, the participants attended the screening of a special message left for them by former ESSEC alumni Nicolas Hieronimus, Chief Executive Officer of L’Oréal. Inspired by his words and success story, the cohort were keen to learn more about their possible futures at the L’Oréal Group. The floor was then opened to welcome interpretations of L’Oréal’s manifesto motivation ‘Beauty that Moves the World’ as the audience was then guided through the mission, values, profile, portfolio and plans of L’Oréal and L’Oréal Luxe.
With L’Oréal being a pioneer in both beauty and digital, participants from both the Luxury Brand Management and Strategy & Digital Leadership tracks were grateful for the comprehensive presentations given by undoubtedly influential figures within the company and the opportunity to ask them questions about business strategies, digital innovation, sustainability and more. It was a morning to remember, marked by a shared commitment to excellence and knowledge.
