Hudson Group and Mcast have signed a memorandum of understanding which will enable Mcast students gain exposure and on-the-job training within the retail industry. The aim is to equip students with the necessary skills to grow within this ever-growing international industry.
The two parties are collaborating in order to enrich the theoretical and practical training of the students of the Advanced Diploma in Fashion and Retail offered by the Mcast Institute of Creative Arts, thus preparing them for employment in the retail industry.
In particular, Hudson Group employees will support the development of the current curriculum and will run lectures and workshops for the students in a number of retail-related fields.
The retail industry offers many interesting career opportunities with many exciting roles
Furthermore, on an annual basis, a number of students will be offered apprenticeships that will enable them to gain invaluable work experience that will complement their studies, while exposing them to the various interesting career opportunities in the retail sector.
“The retail industry offers many interesting career opportunities with many exciting roles in areas such as brand management, retail store management, visual merchandising, planning and buying and marketing, among others.
“Being a major player in the retail and distribution industry in Malta and the Mediterranean region, we feel we are an ideal partner to support Mcast in its mission to bridge the skills gap and prepare their students for employment in the industry,” said Alfie Borg, Hudson Group CEO.
