Description

A graduate Retail Buying and Assortment Planning is taught each year, whereby students complete a buying and assortment planning project for a corporate retailer. This course is taught using the primary principles of a "flipped classroom": a flexible environment, a culture of learner-centered class time, securing intentional content, and relevant feedback in the moment. The purpose of this course and the method of instruction allows students to analyze corporate retail data to make decisions about the appropriate merchandising, assortment, and purchase of goods. The process enhances the students' classroom experience by allowing them to apply the concepts learned in the curriculum to a real-life project. Although, students often see the project as the only important learning experience, the out-of-classroom activities are essential to the learning process and the success of the project. Students complete reading assignments and case studies outside of the classroom. There are also videos to clarify concepts.
