Preparing Tomorrow's Retail Leaders

Since 1993, the Terry J. Lundgren Center for Retailing at the Norton School of Human Ecology has brought together the resources and expertise of academia and the retailing industry with a shared goal of developing strong future retail professionals. The Center's professional development and hands-on learning opportunities ensure that the retailing and consumer sciences students and those from other programs from across campus, have the skill set, training, and expertise to lead and thrive in a competitive marketplace.  Supported by major retailing, technology and consulting partners, the Center incorporates the ideas and innovation that help to inspire the next generation of retail experts – our Future Retail Leaders.

No other Center compares in its efforts to expand its educational reach to industry leadership through such interactive experiences as the Global Retailing Ideas Summit and our Executive Education, where the industry’s top executives and leading minds connect.
