The Diploma in Retail Management has had 42 runs conducted over the past 22 years. The Retail Academy of Singapore is proud to take over this successful programme from August 2005. This programme started as a collaborative effort between the Singapore Retailers Association’s Institute for Retailing and the Institute for Retail Studies (IRS), University of Stirling.

More than 1,000 retail staff have graduated; many of them are now in senior positions. Some 100 retailers have sponsored their staff on this programme.

The programme is taught by a local faculty as well as the faculty from the IRS. Conducted over a period of 15 months, the programme helps participants integrate their retail experience with relevant retail concepts, and international practices.
