In a world where consumers have unlimited choices, learn how to analyze and place products to ensure their success.
This course will give students critical and competitive skills for roles in Space Management or Retail Merchandising for retailers, manufacturers and sales/marketing agencies.

While focusing on the principals of  how retailers use space management to develop planograms and floor plans to help make decisions, student will learn how to allocate space between brands and categories, as well as where to position them on the shelf and in the store.  Much of class time spent on learning what actual retailers require to make fact-based decisions about their shelves, such as inventory analysis, gross margin return on investment, days of supply, annual turns, etc.  Students will study the impact of product placement, traffic flow, adjacencies, out-of-stocks, etc. on sales and profitability.  At least one field trip will be included to an office that houses space technologists working on planograms – so students can see how the role actually works in a business environment.
