Oxford Institute of Retail Management
Oxford Retail Summer School Masters
Dates for 2019 will be published here as soon as they become available.
Exploring challenges in the retail world
26 February - 1 March 2018
The OSS Retail Masters was established in 2006, following an identified gap in retail development at a senior level within the Industry. For nearly 80 years the British Independent Retailers Association (BIRA) has been running the Oxford Retail Summer School for junior managers.
Now, this expertise has been amalgamated with assistance from the Oxford Institute of Retail Management, Saïd Business School at Oxford University to produce the OSS Retail Masters.
The Masters programme explores the overall challenges facing the retail world of both today and tomorrow with the assistance of recognised experts in specific fields such as global sourcing, ethical trading, demography, business management and climate change.
Nothing like the Masters programme exists currently – it is unique. It is a chance to network with other companies, learn from world class speakers and to stretch yourself in a challenging but supportive environment. Companies such as Harrods, John Lewis, B&Q, Nike and WH Smith have participated
