Our industry is going through an unprecedented structural change not seen before. Retail is no longer retail… it’s a blurring of lines between retail, leisure, food and beverage, day time and night economy and online, as the consumer searches for the ultimate all-round retail experience.
As an industry we are constantly being challenged to get the best out of our assets in driving performance and value. Equally as important, do we have the right practical skillset and knowledge, to manage and operate these complex assets that sit at the heart of our communities. The competencies required to undertake the role of centre manager have turned the traditional manager role into a commercial manager who needs to present, interpret financial data into strategy, facilitate wider community partnerships….and much more.
In keeping up with this industry change and the need for upskilling, we have developed a bespoke two year part-time Diploma (Level 4, 120 credits) to fit around your busy work and home life.
Principles of Retail and Leisure Management.
Principles of Property Law – The Legal Fundamentals.
Financial Monitoring and Reporting.
Management, Operations, and Health and Safety.
Principles of Marketing.
Project: The Retail Place – The Future Leaders Project.
A blended learning approach.
Through a blended learning approach whether face-to-face taught, online, presentations, case study work, interpretation of financial data, writing reports for all levels of management, this practical Diploma puts knowledge and confidence building at the heart of your learning experience, with skills that you can apply immediately.
And better still… there are no examinations. Hooray!
