The MECSC Schools for Professional Development (Levels 1 & 2) are 4-day programs leading to a Certificate of Training Completion.
The programs cover a comprehensive, concentrated, rigorous course taught by prominent shopping centre industry experts from the USA, Europe and the Middle East who serve as faculty. It is designed to ensure that participants will learn how to develop, lease, market and operate a shopping centre successfully.
The two-level courses, scheduled over five days, provide powerful tools and information that can be applied immediately when participants return to their work. To encourage dynamic interaction amongst participants and between the faculty and participants, participants will complete small assignments in small group meetings, review materials, discuss business problems and solutions and exchange ideas.
Disciplines include Management, Marketing and Leasing in Levels I & II. Level I & Level II are held con-currently and attendees can only attend one level for the entire duration of the course.
Participants will be taught the fundamentals of operating a shopping centre more effectively as well as learn how
the essential components fit, the basic principles of the art and science of merchandising, the economics and the
leasing strategies to effectively impact the income and retail productivity of their centre.
The ICSC/MECSC John T. Riordan School for Retail Real Estate Professionals offer participants the finest learning experience and an unmatched exchange of industry experts and executives from around the region.
