Coming Soon - Retail Math at bebe University

Early this year, the Merchant Retail Math eLearning course will launch on bebe University. We are product people, and people-people. The business underlies everything we do at bebe.

WHAT IS THE RETAIL MATH E-LEARNING COURSE?

The Retail Math eLearning course will give all members of the bebe organization a foundational understanding of retail math – from the merchant perspective.

It will walk through key business concepts and metrics important to measuring sales, profit, inventory, and buying. You will see the connection between your work and the work of the corporate merchant teams.

The course is self-directed and self-paced. You can login when you have 10 minutes. Videos will guide you through each topic, and quizzes will test your knowledge and application of concepts.

 

WHAT IS THE MERCHANT PERSPECTIVE?

The retail and wholesale trade is the merchant’s concern. The course doesn’t teach operational retail math – it guides you through retail math as it relates to product, sales, inventory and buying.

 

WHY IS RETAIL MATH IMPORTANT TO bebe’s GROWTH?

The Retail Math training will improve our results and strategies by enabling a better understanding of key merchant concepts. The business decisions we make will be stronger. We will understand our customer more fully through our data-driven results. We will then exceed her expectations!

LAUNCH DATE: February 2016

Retail Math Course Highlights

 

1.  We are talking about your business

Concepts and metrics sound theoretical. In the course, they are applied to your business. Your product and business results, your business challenges and opportunities. The course is a relevant way to spend 10 minutes of your week.

 

2.  On your demand

Available on bebe University: any time, any place, any device. As many times as you’d like, as you need it.

 

3.  Small lessons, big information

Most lessons are under 10 minutes in length – get in, learn something, complete the short quiz, and you’re out.

 

4.  Build your skillset

Knowledge empowers. These Retail Math lessons are designed to bring you small insights, which will spark new ideas as you move through your week.

 

5.  It’s Retail Math for people who hate math

Many of us are product people and people-people. The good news is that this course was developed by those same people. It’s not dry, it’s connected to what you do everyday. Enjoy.

 

Spend 10 minutes this week on a lesson.


10 minutes a week adds up!

This one’s not in the Retail Math course:

If you spend 10-minutes a week training for 8 weeks means that you’ve dedicated 80 minutes to building your professional skillset. A little bit of consistently spent time adds up!

Put in into your calendar for this week.
