Merchandising Management
 

Marketing. Merchandising. Buying. Managing.

As a student in the merchandising management program, you can learn the 4 core areas of retail: marketing, merchandising, managing, and buying. With these skills, you will have a well-rounded retail education.

Through the hands-on curriculum, you will spend time understanding techniques of selling, how to display merchandise, and how the internet has changed merchandising management. Because our classes are smaller, students work closely with faculty members who have industry experience.

Employment of retail workers is projected to grow 7 percent from 2014 to 20244

PROGRAM INFORMATION

Catalog

Potential applicants may find the following information at  www.bradfordpittsburgh.edu/catalog.pdf: institutional accreditation; contact information for accrediting agencies and state licensing/approval agencies; admissions policies and practices; policies on transfer of credits to and from the institution; policies and processes for withdrawal and for refunds of tuition/fees; and additional consumer information.

Credit Transfer From Another School

Transcripts of work completed at other accredited colleges may be submitted to the Director of Education for review. Transcripts should be submitted during the first term of a student’s program. 

Other documentation may also be required. Credits considered for transfer are evaluated by the Director of Education to determine if the course work is similar in nature, content, and level to that required at Bradford School. If the course work is comparable, transfer students may be given credit for courses completed at other accredited colleges provided the grades received for the courses were “C” or better. Courses completed at other Bradford schools will be treated the same as courses taken at Bradford School. Because programs at Bradford School are specially tailored to career preparation, course credits from other postsecondary schools may not be transferable. 

Credit is not granted for advanced placement or experiential learning. One exception is credit for military training that has been evaluated and recommended for credit by the American Council on Education (ACE). Bradford School may award credit based on these recommendations when the credit is for courses similar in nature, content, and level to that required at the college. 

Students seeking credit for military training should provide a transcript from the American Council on Education for evaluation. Credit will be treated as transfer credit and will count toward graduation. 

Credit Transfer To Another School

The acceptance of credits is always at the discretion of the institution to which a student is attempting to transfer credits. 

There may be articulation agreements in place at the time the student enters that may not be in place when the student graduates or desires to attend a particular school. Because programs at Bradford School are designed specifically for career preparation, students must assume that credits for courses taken at Bradford School are not transferable to other institutions. Neither Bradford School nor any of its employees can represent that another institution will accept any courses for credit. 

A student who is interested in attempting to transfer credits to another institution should contact the Director of Education. 

Bradford School will supply the necessary documentation that may aid the student in receiving credits for the completed course work provided the student does not owe the school money, is not delinquent or in default on a student loan, or does not owe a refund on any federal or state student financial aid program.
