Retail Management

Retail is critical to the future growth and development of the global economy. This sandwich degree focuses on management rather than marketing, encouraging you to develop project management and consultancy skills to focus on business improvement. It is stimulating, creative and challenging to anyone with retail in mind as a destination career. You’ll gain a good knowledge, from managing shop floors and stores/regions to head office functions and planning, underpinned with strong theoretical frameworks of consumer knowledge, technology, business modelling and multi and omni-channelling to name just a few. You’ll have the opportunity to work alongside tutors in live consultancy work such as experience-touch mapping for multi-channel retailers and high street development projects, and visit trade fairs to meet suppliers and retail professionals. You could pursue a variety of in-store or online career opportunities in retail, service or business environments, including store management, logistics or merchandising, for example. Among our graduates we have senior merchandisers at Debenhams and Next, a cosmetics buyer for Harvey Nichols and a product manager at Co-op’s head office.
