Partner with Retailing

The School of Retailing is a centre entirely funded through partnerships, donations and events within the Alberta School of Business at the University of Alberta. Building on the strength of the programs offered by the Alberta School of Business, we support strong foundations in the fundamentals of commerce with retail-specific training and an integrated program of real-world experience through a variety of industry partnerships.

Partnership Opportunities

The School of Retailing has a structure to enable industry relationships with students and applicable research. Some partnerships focus on recruitment and some on research or consulting. Each relationship is different, but aims to work in concert with the retail industry to grow interest, skill, and knowledge of retailers and potential employees.

We look to build partnerships with consulting firms, consumer packaged goods firms, asset management companies, retailers and real estate firms.

We encourage you to start the conversation so we can see if partnership is the right fit for your organization. Contact us at
