29 years of location planning

Retail Location Analysis (RLA) is an annual executive education programme run by the Oxford Institute of Retail Management within the Said Business School’s programme portfolio, now in its 29th year. It is designed for retail managers with oversight of or day-to-day responsibility for location planning and development and has become an important date in retailers’ diaries.

For the first time, the Institute has made presentations from two of the contributors available on line. Oxford’s Jonathan Reynolds, Programme Director, talks about Retail 2030: New Challenges for Location Analysis’ whilst Professor Alex Singleton, from Liverpool University, discusses his work on ‘Developments in Spatial Data Visualisation’. Both Jonathan and Alex are directors of the ESRC’s Consumer Data Research Centre.

For the first time in 2015, two CDRC bursaries were made available to support the costs of attending the programme for academics from the UK (University of Cambridge) and internationally (Finland, Turku School of Economics).
