How can you drive digital innovation in the future of retail?
The Master of Management in Retailing (MMR), offered in partnership with the Bensadoun School of Retail Management, provides students with advanced marketing techniques, omni-channel approach, and the tools they need to respond to the rapidly changing & increasingly complex global business environment.
The McGill Master of Management in Retailing (MMR) degree is a 16-month specialized program (12 months for those with extensive retail experience) to prepare future leaders in the ever-evolving field of retail with a strong emphasis on experiential learning.
The MMR program provides students with advanced marketing techniques, omni-channel approach, and the tools they need to respond to the rapidly changing & increasingly complex global business environment.
Students will earn a master's degree of management in retailing and gain expertise in managerial problem-solving through the utilization of cutting-edge retail tools, all in preparation for impactful careers in the retail industry across various sectors and managerial roles.
As we have all seen, things have changed! What worked before in retail will not necessarily work today or in the future. There’s nothing traditional or expected about our MMR program. There can’t be if we expect our students to lead the future of retail. We recognize that each one of our students come to us with a diverse background, skillset, and vision for the future. Our 12- and 16-month program options and wide selections of electives take this diversity of need into account.

Practical knowledge to hit the ground running…
We also recognize that employers are hungry for a set of skills that most retailing programs have historically neglected to teach, like retail analytics, sustainability, and design thinking. That’s why we are in constant communication with our retail partners and collaborators to ensure that our curriculum is exactly what top retail employers want and need. With a variety of sector concentrations like Fashion/Luxury Goods, Food/Grocery, Fintech, and Entertainment/Hospitality, our students can personalize their learning to gain a competitive edge. In designing our MMR program, we have pioneered a new era of retail education and leadership and we expect our students to lead the ever-evolving retail landscape!
The MMR program is designed as a pre-experience program, meaning no prior work experience is necessary. However, candidates with a background in retail may be given preference. The program welcomes students from diverse academic backgrounds, including those with an undergraduate degree in any discipline, who possess a keen interest in the field of retail along with some analytical and computer acumen.
The RIL offers omni-channel retail activities in a ‘live and open’ setting and fosters collaborations between interdisciplinary & inter-faculty academics & key players in retail, emerging technologies and start-ups.

McGill University is on land which long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. We acknowledge and thank the diverse Indigenous people whose footsteps have marked this territory on which peoples of the world now gather.
