Retail Executive Education Program

The retail environment is being disrupted by new technologies and business models, changes in demographics and preferences, and globalization. Retailers who are unable to respond to these disruptive forces are struggling. If you are leader in retail, explore what RISE can offer you!


 “The Sobey RISE Program primed everyone who attended from our organization not to be afraid to innovate. We realized innovation is stressful, but essential and the program structure allowed everyone to think innovatively and consider what happens if you aren’t. No one wants to be THAT company!”
