In partnership with Solent University Southampton, we are delighted to announce our new Diploma in Retail and Leisure Place Management – the industry qualification!



The Challenge.

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.

Bootcamp weekend.

Want a taster of our new course? Book on to our bootcamp weekend where you'll get to meet the academics, your peers, network and equally as important, complete your first module 'Introduction to Retail Real Estate', walking away with 5 credits of learning.  

Then decide if you are up for the challenge… in advancing your career and achieving that next promotion!
