LCBS, India's first and only Luxury Business School has been a pioneer in the luxury management education industry. Launched in 2012 by Abhay Gupta, an industry veteran, the school literally initiated the category of special education for the luxury business.
The COVID crisis has thrown unprecedented challenges to all businesses including education. Universities and colleges all over the world are innovating and figuring out new ways and means of continuing the students learning process.
On the announcement of lockdown 1.0 in March, LCBS has swiftly transgressed to online classes via live streaming applications. Examinations via live proctoring, industry connect sessions, and live projects via virtual mode to mentoring and counselling are all being orgsed digitally.
Further, bearing in mind the pandemic and a natural reluctance of students and parents to travel outside the comfort of their homes, LCBS has announced a first-ever hybrid model in luxury brand management. For the next cohort of September 2020 intake, the institute has once again innovated its offerings to the students.
The school now offers luxury brand management via both on-campus and off-campus modes. A student has the flexibility of switching the modes during the course of the program.
The schedules are being managed in a manner that there is no gap between lectures of the two modes. In fact, software for live transmission of on-campus classes is being evaluated to further ensure equal and parallel learning for students of both the cohorts.
Students who opt for the off-campus mode will be invited for an in campus experience for two weeks per term. During this visit, they will have the opportunity to meet the faculty for a doubt clearing session on a face to face basis; mingle with your peers and other industry seniors. Also, experiential learning visits, a hallmark of LCBS, will be arranged during these trips.
Needless to say, the options provide an opportunity for the students to choose what suits them. The overall investment in education is also impacted since the students living expenses are reduced drastically.
Further details of both the modes are as follows:
