The Retail Management Development Programme targets managers, supervisors, and potential leaders from historically disadvantaged groups to wholesale and retail best practices, nationally, leading faculty on the functional areas of business and specially crafted engagements and experiences. During the programme, delegates are immersed in an in-market experience to accelerate their business insights and learn directly from global business leaders.
The RMDP cultivates not only personal and professional development, but also creates opportunities for participants to function more effectively in a team. This programme has been specifically designed to meet the needs of the wholesale and retail sector and combines academic rigour and practical implementation.
The RMDP is one of the W&RSETA flagship projects, and it is deliberate in its intention to develop and accelerate wholesale supervisors and retail managers from PDI backgrounds to national and global experiences and trends.
The programme is intended to address the matter of an untransformed sector, by developing and training managers selected from the designated groups to sharpen their knowledge and skills.
The RMDP is pitched at NQF 7, and delegates that are nominated and participate on the programme are expected to exit with an NQF 7 qualification.
Participants will be enrolled under the intervention Bachelor of Business Administration in Retail Management at NQF 7 with a minimum of 360 credits required for successful completion.
