Retailing

minor

This minor exposes students to an industry that is global, technical, and robust. It teaches how retailers procure merchandise, understand strategic analytics, and adapt to constantly changing markets to remain competitive. Along with academic theory, students studying this minor are exposed and encouraged to network with industry executives to understand state of the art practices and learn from those practicing in the channels. As they approach senior year, students will be challenged to experience managerial positions with supervised retail internships in both stores and support centers.
