The Center for Retail Management was started in 2010 as a partnership between the Texas Retailers Association and the University of Houston Downtown. The Center is dedicated to serving the educational needs of retail store managers.
The Center for Retail Management supports the retail industry by providing educational and research programs for retail managers and those who desire to own a retail business. The programs provide the education and skill set needed by persons responsible for the day-to-day operations of a retail business. The retail businesses supported through the educational programs of the center range from single store to multiple store enterprises across the entire spectrum of retail outlets, including the retailing of services.
Why a Career in Retail Management ?
The Center publishes Retail Links (an e-newsletter) four times a year. The newsletter includes interviews with retail managers and articles discussing retail trends and best practices. If you are interested in subscribing, please click here to sign up.
