Major in Retail Management

Susan D. Sampson, Director
The Prince Program in Retail Management, established in 1905 by Lucinda Prince, has long been recognized as one of the country's most prestigious undergraduate programs specifically geared toward preparing women for a career in all aspects of retailing. Retailing is a major segment of the U.S. and global economy and success in this industry greatly depends upon the retailer's ability to adapt to changing demographics and lifestyles, respond quickly and effectively to global competition, utilize the available technology, and apply sound marketing and financial management. The Prince Program equips its graduates with the academic foundation and the experiential tools required to succeed in this environment.
