The Luxury Education Foundation, established in 2004, is a public, not-for-profit organization focused on shaping future business leaders through global, interdisciplinary educational programs and one-on-one mentorships with CEOs and leading executives in the luxury world.
We focus on how to creatively approach business models, and broaden the meaning of education by developing skills that trickle down to any industry. Starting in the classroom, and continuing throughout their entire professional journey, we aim to instill in our selected group of students and alumni the highest standards of excellence, processes and work ethics from ethics from the luxury field that will allow them to excel in any sector.
We pride ourselves in connecting luxury leadership with promising talent, and accompanying them in their professional journeys so they may fulfill their full potential.
Since 2005, LEF has cultivated an exclusive partnership with Columbia Business School and Parsons School of Design; and has added Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2013. Through our 16 programs, over 600 students have begun their professional journey with the rigor and discipline they learned from their LEF luxury experiences.
LEF is at a crossroads to institutionalize and expand its programs as the organization's footprint becomes more global. The foundation is looking for support to carry on its mission and provide unparalleled opportunities to the future leaders of all sectors.
