Diploma Retail Business Management

The Retail industry strives to satisfy the needs of consumers by providing necessary products and services. Each day there is evidence of the retail trade around you, whether you’re standing in a queue, looking at a window display, filling your trolley with groceries or trying on a pair of jeans. Studying a Diploma in Retail Business Management at the University of Johannesburg prepares you for the dynamic industry of retailing and teaches you how to actively become involved behind the scenes.
To be successful in retailing you also need high energy levels, exceptional people skills and entrepreneurial qualities. Students should be willing to start at the bottom or store level and work towards management as this is essential to understanding the overall functioning of the business. Retailing often provides flexible working hours, however it may often demand extra time from those individuals who deal directly with customers.
The modules offered cover a broad spectrum of disciplines applied within the retail industry today and best prepares the graduate to enter into junior to middle management when the graduate is ready.
