Dubai, UAE (PRWEB) October 15, 2014
Retail Pro International, together with the University of Dubai and the Dubai Chamber, have partnered to deliver a new Retail Certification Series aimed at fostering sustained retail growth in the Middle East. The training series looks to accomplish this by equipping retailers with today's best practices and progressive strategies for effectively positioning their enterprises for dynamic growth or change. This ongoing certification series will offer two new courses each semester beginning November 2, 2014, presented by Dan Jablons of Retail Smart Guys, one of the world's top experts in retail strategy and management.
This unique collaboration between Retail Pro International, University of Dubai, the Dubai Chamber and Retail Smart Guys is result of an ongoing collective effort of all organizations to empower the region's Emirati in the interest of facilitating and expanding upon the Middle East's exceptional retail growth over the past two decades. The region continues to be one of the world's most explosive retail growth markets as investment continues to flow in from domestic and multi-national organizations.
"I couldn't be more excited to help develop the retail knowledge in this sector of the world," said Dan Jablons, President of Retail Smart Guys. "This is an exciting opportunity for everyone involved, and we will see the immediate results as retailers gain the knowledge needed to drive their stores to greater success."
The two courses offered during the first semester of the Retail Certification Series focus on developing a retail strategy for store management and merchandising. Both will be taught by Jablons, a recognized global retail strategy expert who has worked with retailers such as Walmart, Target, JC Penney, American Apparel, Betsey Johnson and Donna Karan among others. Retail Pro International, who has partnered before with Jablons to deliver retail training and education, continues to reinforce a strong commitment to retail development in the Middle East. During 2014, RPI has opened its first satellite office in Dubai to foster stronger relationships with customers and business partners, and will continue this momentum with the upcoming launch of the Retail Certification Series in November.
Registration has begun, and the classes are expected to sell out quickly. Retailers in Dubai can register for the courses at http://www.ud.ac.ae/en/ced-register.
