The supermarket sector has undergone major transformations that are forcing its actors to adapt in response to the growing competition of pure play companies and keep up to date with changing consumer needs.
The boom in organic products, drive-thrus, fast delivery, locally located stores, increased connections between physical and online stores, self-service check-outs and checkout-free stores are all crucial developments that must be taken into account by distributors wishing to stand out from competitors and increase customer loyalty.
The European Bachelor’s in Distribution Management provides students with the professional knowledge and solid technical, operational and interpersonal skills needed to improve their response time, their sense of organisation and their adaptivity to change.
