At the end of April I co-hostessed a Study Tour for visiting LA based students in the Advanced Study Program in Beauty Industry Management. These students are in their 3rd year and heading towards a Bachelor's in Professional Studies with a Beauty Specialty. The 3rd year program offers a focused concentration on retail business management, global business operations, merchandising, product development, luxury brand management and managerial decision making. Julie Arnone and I designed this inaugural Tour to expose students to the dynamic companies and professionals that are based in the Bay Area. Students met with CEO's, marketing managers, customer service representatives, counter supervisors, brand ambassadors, and HR professionals during their visit to the Bay Area.
