BWG Diploma produces first set of graduates
16 June 2010
The Class of 2010 from the BWG Foods Diploma in Retail Management, run in partnership with Dublin Institute of Technology, have received their diplomas in a special graduation ceremony held at DIT Aungier Street. In all, 23 retailers and BWG Retail Operations Advisors picked up their diplomas becoming the first students to complete the two-year programme.
According to Malachy Hanberry, sales and retail advisory services director with BWG Foods: “The graduation ceremony was the culmination of years of hard work for the students who attained their diplomas while also working full time in the demanding environment of food retailing. We established the diploma programme with the aim of assisting group retailers to achieve a leading edge in Ireland’s competitive retail market and I’m pleased to say that our first retail graduates feel that the programme has been enormously relevant and beneficial to them in their business.” Enrolling for the 2010 course which begins in September is now underway.
