The program has been developed in close consultation with leading retailers and academics from India& beyond, and will be taught at Mumbai and Chennai starting August 2014.
The program has an international pedigree and is evolved from similar such best programs from around the world and will be led by Dr Nitin Sanghavi, Professor of Retail Marketing and Strategy at Manchester Business School, and founder and director of MBS Retail Center, one of the world’s largest specialist Retail executive education providers.
The 2 year PGXP-RM program will not only cover the basic building blocks of a good post graduate executive program with retail relevance, as and where appropriate, but will focus exclusively in the second year on retailing including key functions, agents of change as well as emerging national/international trends with live projects and relevant case-studies.
“The PGXP – RM program being offered by the Center for Excellence in Retail Management will provide world class practices, exchange of ideas, solutions to industry problems by training middle/senior level managers” says Prof Bala V. Balachandran, Founder and Dean, Great Lakes Institute of Management.
Dr. Nitin Sanghavi, Director of Center for Excellence in Retail Management at Great Lakes Institute of Management said, “Our first of its kind retail management program has been designed focusing on the emerging needs in the retail sector. In line with this we have ensured a good combination of Content, Faculty, Context and Approach. The objective is to create a learning environment which develops management competencies and equips middle/senior level managers to take leadership position in retail organizations. Renowned retail brands like Trent, Titan, Shoppers Stop, Vishal, Hyper city etc., are forerunners to show interest in nominating their managers for this program.”
“Omni channel is the future of the retail industry. In India family owned business and traditional retailers like Kirana stores will play a strong role in the years to come. A retail course like this will provide a platform to all the retailers to understand what’s there in the future and adapt to changes. If you have to be successful in retail space you have to be quick.” Added Dr. Sanghavi
