Business course: FutuRetail

Do you want to shape the future of Retail?

Every year more supermarkets are opened, with more aisles, more space and more products. Consumers however are not buying more, and prices are generally going down, not up. To make things worse, increasingly consumers do their shopping online, even for fresh products. New competition is entering the arena with innovative business models. The retailing landscape will be disrupted profoundly in the coming years. You are the CEO of a large retailer and your stores are getting emptier and emptier… what do you do? Welcome to ‘FutuRetail’.
