Retail Management

To move up to a better job in the retail industry, you need to gain some form of management training. Earning a degree in retail management qualifies you to participate in strategic planning, interact with vendors and designers, and manage a staff. Retail managers, also called purchasing managers, are involved in every facet of the business.

A retail management program is perfect for the student with previous retail experience, as it adds the principles of business and finance to your experience. Our consumer-driven society has created a high demand for graduates with the bachelor of retail management credential.
