The first year begins in Milan, Sedico and Agordo so the Futuresighters can experience where Luxottica got its start. The students will tour the manufacturing and logistics hubs, spend time with business managers of the key functions relevant to their paths and visit different stores and company offices, getting an in-depth and close-up look at Luxottica’s operations and corporate functions .

In the second year of the program, the students will travel to one of the company’s largest markets, either the United States or Europe, followed by either Latin America, China, Japan or Singapore. In these different locations, the Futuresighters will gain critical, hands-on experience in various areas, including Retail, Wholesale, E-Commerce and Operations, in order to have a 360 ° view of Luxottica’s business.

At the end of their 24 month adventure, each student will have earned a role in a different function within the company.  Having experienced Luxottica from every perspective, these Futuresighters will be able to contribute to the company in unique and engaging ways.
