  • Overview

    Theory - Portfolio not required.

    The module will look at how as future managers you can best drive profit in a changing world. The module will focus less on what will happen but rather opening your minds as to how trends evolve and how they then may impact on the world of retailing. There will be a great deal of scope for you to research trends and retailers that particularly interest you. In addition you will be introduced to the concept of strategy. What does it mean for you as future merchandisers, why and how does it vary between businesses. Much focus will be on how you approach both research and the generation of ideas, in addition group work will be an important part of sharing ideas and knowledge.
