So what exactly do I stand to gain if I am offered a place on the Retail Management Degree Programme?
Ask any college graduate about the role work experience had in their studies and they will tell you that there is no substitute for it. Not only can you relate real-life situations to your study, which makes the theory easier to grasp - but you can also apply what you’ve learned in the lecture halls very quickly in the workplace.
Lidl and Dublin Business School have structured the programme in a way that allows you to maximise your learning potential. A college-based term immediately follows each work-based term, allowing you to constantly develop the connection between theory and practice.
And here are few more good reasons...
Career-focused apprenticeship in management.
Excellent chance of being employed by Lidl, after successful completion of the programme, as Deputy Store Manager with very attractive salary and benefits.
Fantastic career opportunities – only one small step away from running your very own Lidl store with an industry-leading salary and benefits package!
Personal mentoring and tuition throughout the programme.
Resources and experience of Dublin Business School for all your educational needs.
Regular training sessions and classes with the other Lidl trainees.
Excellent preparation for examinations through lectures and seminars from experienced and dedicated college staff and lecturers.
The retail industry is interesting, exciting and ever-changing.
Lots of teamwork and constant contact with customers.
Responsibility, even during the apprenticeship programme.
No boredom - in retail every day is something different.
Financial freedom - Attractive salary.
Enough holidays and flexible working hours, so that you can continue with your hobbies and enjoy student life.
