Designed by retailers, the Professional Retail Programme (PRP) builds merchants of the future. A nine-month graduate internship, it equips graduates for junior positions in buying, planning and store management. Graduates learn the key roles and responsibilities of the retail value chain; and how these add value to business and consumers. The internship is delivered through a cloud-based learning platform and a combination of classroom, self-study and group project work, along with five months of hands-on work experience in selected retail environments.
