On Friday 18th of March, the students of Master of Science in Luxury Hospitality and Retail had the opportunity of being part of the Monaco Private Label event.

This all happened grace to Mrs. Annalisa Tarquini (Director of Master in Luxury Business), Mrs. Fawzia Farouk (Administrator of Monaco Private Label) and Mr. Eric Althaus (President of Althaus Luxury Yachting).

During this Monaco Private Label event, the students of the International University of Monaco were proudly helping with the good sequence of the event; from the early conference at Hôtel Hermitage, the visits to the different foundations in Monaco (Foundation Albert II de Monaco and Foundation Francis Bacon) until the charity gala at the Casino of Monte Carlo in the presence of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II.

Our biggest challenge was to adapt to all the different personalities of the guests we came in contact with. They are all Ultra High Net Worth Individuals with multicultural backgrounds, therefore we had to offer the highest standard services. Also we were closely working with our managers to ensure the good coordination during the day. It was the first time we were cooperating with them and teamwork was the key word that we had to retain during this event.

There are not enough words to express our thanks for this opportunity.
