The School of Management and GBH are joining forces to create a degree for future department managers on the island. This 3-year higher education degree is the first in Réunion to qualify for the DistriSup label. It responds to the significant need for qualified staff in the mass retail sector that is currently thriving in Réunion.
Setting up a degree to train future department managers
Under the impetus of GBH, on Monday 18 January the School of Management launched its new DistriSup work-study degree (3 years’ higher education) with the objective of training future department managers. Eleven learners have begun their 12-month work-study training programme, splitting their time between university classes and working at GBH subsidiaries Carrefour Réunion and Décathlon Réunion. The objective of this degree is to train professionals who are already working as well as young people studying three essential retail skills: business, logistics, and management. At the end of a training programme delivered by School of Management teachers and professionals, the learners will have to present a dissertation. The degree is open to all the mass retail chains in the territory.
