Contest description

Corporate Social Responsibility is at the heart of Bulgari’s development strategy and plays a key role in its daily operations.
With the Swiss Genius innovation award, Bulgari aims to challenge future generations, the managers of tomorrow, to embrace this mission with an innovative and entrepreneurial approach through the development of a project of their choice, individually or by teams of three people, around one main topic:

How can luxury leverage sustainable development goals (SDGs) to attract young customers?

This competition consisting of a Jury Prize is destined for Business School students across Switzerland currently studying for a Master's degree at :

The University of Lausanne (UNIL), the Université of St. Gallen (HSG), the Université of Neuchâtel (UNIne), the Zurich School of Managment and Law (ZHAW), The Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) andGlion Institute of Higher Education.

It aims to make the winning projects known to luxury professionals and to integrate the winners’ proposals into Bulgari's strategy.

The jury will evaluate all projects that present an innovative solution to the brand, related to SDGs.

The prize will include an invitation to Bulgari’s HQ in Rome to present the project to the Global CSR team, in addition to a full tour of Bulgari’s workshops and offices.
In addition to this, all students pre-selected during the first round judging period happening by mid-April will have the opportunity to submit their application for a three-month paid internship within the CRS team in Rome and have their resume carefully reviewed by HR to facilitate their possible recruitment.
