Designed by Retail Industry Experts

The Retail Management Certificate program was created by experts in the industry to provide relevant knowledge and skills to their workforce. This program has successfully prepared nearly 2,000 graduates for management positions. Employers benefit directly from the higher level of self-confidence and engagement displayed by graduates. When you become a participating employer, you empower your employees and join a community of forward-thinking corporations.

Recently recognized by the White House as part of the Upskill Initiative, the certificate is currently available online nationally and on campus at approved community colleges throughout the U.S., and can be completed in as little as one year.

The certificate program was established under the direction of the Western Association of Food Chains which includes many of today’s leading retailers and wholesalers, and 7,500 + supermarkets. The program also continues to gain endorsement from leading organizations including Food Marketing Institute (FMI) and National Grocers Association (NGA). Most recently, the Retail Management Certificate has gained recognition from highly respected entities such as the ACT Foundation, and the U.S. Department of Labor.
