HYDERABAD: Even as India is clearing decks for foreign direct investment into multi-brand retail, the country's first retail sector focussed business school is coming up at Hyderabad from Global Retail Education and Training (GREAT) India in partnership with the Australian Retail College (ARC).

Apart from providing technical expertise, ARC will assist GREAT (India) with program content, facilitate visits of expert teaching staff and also explore opportunities for graduates with the Australian retail employers.

The B-School, with its campus at Gundlapochampalli in the Hyderabad outskirts, offers intensive one year full time post graduation programs in retail management and retail entrepreneurship.

Addressing the media in Hyderabad on Thursday, the ARC chief executive officer Mike Wallace opined that the retail sectors in India and Australia shared a number of similarities and offered similar challenges and opportunities.

"India will require an additional 17 million retail staff by 2022. The retail industry faces challenges in attracting and retaining career staff and competes with other high growth sectors for skilled recruits. The rapid growth in demand for staff in the sector and the subsequent skilling of these people to a globally competitive level will continue to be a real challenge for the retail sector in the future," he said.
