Cass and the British Council of Shopping Centres link up to deliver executive masterclasses
Programme developed as industry faces 'challenging market'
Cass Business School has joined forces with the British Council of Shopping Centres (BCSC) to develop a series of masterclasses for professionals working in retailer and retail property sectors.
The executive programme is a bespoke offering developed by academics at Cass in conjunction with industry leaders . The sessions are designed to equip delegates with the knowledge and industry insight they need to compete in the face of a challenging market for the sector.
Speakers at each session will include academics from Cass and leading professionals from companies including CBRE, Cushman & Wakefield, Gardiner and Theobald, Hammerson, Lawrence Graham, Prupim, Westfield and Cripps Harries Hall.
The master classes will be taught around three main themes:
- Diagnosing and creating investment potential
- Understanding and managing the shopping centre experience
- Driving shopping centre performance
BCSC chief executive Michael Green said: "Education plays a big part in innovation and improved business performance. Whatever the economic climate, there are always great opportunities within our sector for both. We at BCSC are committed to our role of offering our members world class training programmes."
Colin Carnall, Chief Executive of Cass Executive Education said: "Cass is delighted to be working with BCSC in this innovative set of executive development programmes. Working closely both with colleagues from the BCSC and member firms Cass is contributing to management skills and capability in this most important sector of the UK economy."
