You will get a firm grasp of all aspects of retail and will develop your professional career from an operational and strategic perspective: purchasing management, logistics organisation and brand positioning, as well as designing expansion plans and branching out into other channels (self-owned shops, franchises, corner franchises, outlets, travel retail, online, etc.).

All taught by industry executives who will give you a keen insight into dealing with brands on a daily basis.
