Retailing
The secondary concentration in Retailing provides an interdisciplinary overview of the retailing industry, combining courses in core retailing skills with industry relevant electives from Wharton and the College of Arts & Sciences. Four course units (cu’s) are required for the secondary concentration, based on the following framework:
 • Retailing Core Component (1.0 cu): Introductory courses in retailing and retail supply chain management;
 • Marketing Component (1.0 cu): Selected from retail-relevant courses in marketing;
 • Operations Component (1.0 cu): Selected from retail-relevant courses in Management, OPIM, real estate and transportation;
 • Design Component (1.0 cu): Selected from retail-relevant courses in architecture, communications, OPIM, urban studies and visual studies.
A secondary concentration in Retailing is intended to complement course work completed in a primary concentration and provide deep exposure to retail-relevant issues. Retailing cannot be a student’s only concentration at Wharton; students must have declared a primary concentration. Also, one course unit may simultaneously count toward the Business Breadth requirement and the Retailing secondary concentration. However, no other
