Purchasing and Merchandising – As a specialist in purchasing and merchandising, you’ll choose suppliers for your company, negotiate contracts, secure the lowest prices you can and choose the best commodities for your business. Evaluating industry trends and keeping a pulse on the wants of consumers is vital. Kendall College contextualizes your education to give you an edge in careers like these.
Retail Management – As a retail manager you’ll handle virtually every operational aspect of a retail business throughout your career.

A concentration in Entrepreneurship and Business Development will help you grow into an owner as your career progresses.
Restaurateur – If you want to flourish as a restaurateur you’ll need to intimately understand the food service industry to provide a unique niche or brand while overseeing the daily operations of your restaurant.
