The retail sector in the NCR has grown exponentially in recent years. As a result, students of retail management doing MBA Courses in Delhi have many opportunities to get hands-on exposure to the retail sector. Era Business School (EBS), one of the finest business schools offering MBA courses in Delhi, believes that class-room teaching should always be supplemented with industry exposure so that students get an insight into the real workings of different businesses. A guided tour by representatives of that industry enriches the students’ understanding of the operations and other aspects of the business.
Team EBS, comprising Dr. Vandana Sharma, Prof. Nitin Ticku and fifteen Retail Management students, visited Shoppers Stop Rajouri Garden
Mr. Narendra Singh, Area Controller, North Zone and Mr. M. Satyadev, unit Head, Rajouri Garden, shared valuable insights into most of the retail management operations at Shoppers Stop.
Students got a quick look at the history of Shoppers Stop and also a business overview which included an operational flow chart that covered procurement, supply chain, logistics, itemization, warehousing, inventory management, quality check process, merchandising, store layout, location advantages, pricing and retail strategy formulation.
“I have been to this place earlier too, but never realized the amount of hard work that goes into making everything look so smooth. Now that we are studying retail management, everything makes much more sense,” says Pradeep, a second year student of PGDM in retail management. “Before joining, I had heard about the good reputation of EBS, and now I know why EBS is one of the best institutes offering MBA courses in Delhi,” adds Pradeep.
The overall experience was extraordinary, and students got detailed information on every aspect of retail management from dynamic and knowledgeable professionals. They engaged happily in Q and A sessions with the students, and even walked them through the mall. This whole experience is bound to entice students towards a career in retail management.
The learning’s of the day certainly gave the visitors a better understanding of the industry – the next time they visit a mall, their outlook is sure to be completely different. The students were overwhelmed by the wonderful experience, and looked forward to an exciting career in retail management.
