Retail Lab: Certificate Programme Rising stars must be prepared for managing turbulence Certificate Programme in International Retail Management Everybody has noticed it: things are deeply changing in retail. Incumbent retailers are vanishing left and right. New technologies are redefining the retail reality. Novel phenomena like show-/webrooming and cross channel shopping are changing customers’ behaviour. Many managers get shaky just thinking of how different the retail sector is today in comparison to yesterday. Even many well-established management methods do not help to solve today’s challenges. Retail desperately needs fresh air, not only to keep up with the rapid change, but even more, to take the chance of inventing itself new. Well-prepared rising stars are needed to lead this retail transformation in the age of disruption. This is the aim of this Certificate Programme.
