Internships, apprenticeships and VIE
LVMH is a stimulating organization and offers career perspectives within an ecosystem of over 70 exceptional Houses in Europe, the United States and Asia.
Internships, apprenticeships and VIE (international business volunteering) are part of its pre-hire approach. These are opportunities for students to acquire significant professional experience in the high-quality goods sector, while putting their theoretical knowledge into practice.
Interns, apprentices and young graduates are quickly given responsibilities and benefit from hands-on managers with high standards. These high standards measure up to the exceptional character of the Group and its Houses, for which we are looking for pragmatic, rigorous, creative and passionate profiles.
When the mission has been completed, an internship review is carried out. This is an opportunity to take stock of the intern’s professional plans and to prepare the ground for possible future employment.
The LVMH group attends company forums at the many higher education institutes to promote its internship, apprenticeship and VIE offers or its new graduate openings. It fosters special relationships with universities, schools and prestigious MBA programs, in France and overseas:

This ranking is based on feedback from more than 34,000 students from 112 higher education institutions.

L’Institut des Métiers d’Excellence
In 2014, LVMH created l’Institut des Métiers d’Excellence (IME), a professional training program which allows the Group to ensure that its savoir-faire is transmitted, while valuing the careers of craftsmanship and design métiers among younger generations. IME provides certified training through vocational cooperative contracts which are paid for by the Group’s own Houses.
For each course, students follow a program which combines technical and theoretical teaching at school, experience in workshops of the various Houses in the Group, and meetings with the Group’s master artisans and designers.
The Institut’s training courses are designed with recognized learning partners:
- CAP (Certificate of Professional Aptitude) in the art and technique of jewelry at the Paris school of jewelry (BJOP). The internship is completed at Chaumet and Louis Vuitton.
- CAP in dressmaking at the School of the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne (ECSCP). The internship is completed at Dior Couture, Louis Vuitton, Le Bon Marché, Kenzo and Givenchy.
- CAP in leather goods with the Compagnons du Devoir. The internship is completed at Louis Vuitton and Moynat.
L’Institut des Métiers d’Excellence is the only training program that works in association with leading educational establishments to award state-recognized diplomas and promote access to employment for young people by valuing cooperative education in the fields of craftsmanship and design.
