In this ICE (Information, Communication and Entertainment) age, the whole concept of shopping has changed in terms of format and consumer buying behavior. Rapid urbanization and sprawling shopping malls, multi formats of retail stores and multiplexes are coming up at high pace in every city, and retailing has thus grown into the one of the biggest sectors in the global economy. At present, the retail sector is a pulsating industry contributing to the economic growth of many countries across the globe. The retail market is becoming a well-conceived and organized sector, as the number of MNCs entering the industry are increasing by the day and employment is sure to knock in various segments and at different levels.

The retail industry is a people-oriented business. The enormous expansion in the Indian retail sector during the past few years has created a big vacuum in the demand and supply for skilled professionals in the field. It is an industry looking for people at all levels, from the secretarial staff with basic skills, to the well-qualified supply chain and retail management professionals. As the retail industry is poised to become the next burgeoning frontier, and the retail corporations are ready to take the center stage globally, a multitude of opportunities in various capacities have lined up for qualified and skilled retailers.

These insights have led to an innovative and fitting course design of the PG Diploma in Retail Management. The program emphasizes skill development in strategic management, marketing, supply management, product and brand management, retail operations, merchandising, and personnel management, which are unique to the retail industry.
