More than ever before, retail needs strong leadership and resources to maintain its role as our nation’s economic engine.  The Terry J. Lundgren Center For Retailing exists today because retailing needs a center of excellence – a place to prepare students and support faculty to become tomorrow’s industry powerhouse for retailing leadership. Here, students gain the knowledge, expertise and technological savvy to understand their company’s opportunities to serve the customer in multiple channels with maximum efficiencies.  The center advances cutting-edge knowledge and keeps industry connections fresh through executive education programs and  opportunities such as the annual Global Retailing Conference.
