The CFR Research school provided great insights into the past, present, and future of retailing research.
I felt that the well-organized courses not only offered the theoretical and methodological acumen that benefited me as a PhD student but also introduced me to the reviewing process which is an imperative part of PhD life.
The CFR Research School in Retailing was a great way to get a broad overview of topical subjects in retail research and the retail industry.
As I participated shortly after embarking on my Ph.D. journey, I enjoyed having a platform where I met like-minded people with whom I could share my thoughts and develop research collaborations.
