What will I learn?
As the business world undergoes fundamental technological and commercial challenges and change, the leadership and management competencies experienced and learnt in the world of retail have become increasingly critical for every organisation and operation. Every business now either has a retail dimension or needs to build these critical competencies in order to stay competitive.
Retailers run fast moving, commercially driven, constantly innovating businesses, which give us an insight into business leadership today. The Digital Revolution has meant consumers and customers have become harder to find and more difficult to please and retailers have experienced the most dramatic changes in a constantly evolving world.
The MSc in Retail Leadership will equip you with a broad range of strategic, operational and leadership skills that will be an excellent foundation for a career in any business. More specifically the programme outline ensures you have a good overall business acumen, will understand the role of technology and can design customer and consumer propositions that can be applied and implemented in a wide variety of retail or business environments.
