The Retail Management Associate Degree Program helps students prepare to pursue work as sales, store, and supply chain managers, or even in marketing and E-commerce. Here are a few qualities that effective retail managers have in common:
- Intuitive: It’s important to stay a few steps ahead of trends and trust your instincts.
- Flexible: You are productive despite changes to your business.
- Organized: A business has a lot of moving pieces to keep on track.
- Honest: A manager must make decisions that are ethical and responsible.
- Detail oriented: It’s important to have a sharp eye and check things twice.

Will Penn Foster College accept my college credits from a different college or university?
Degree students can have prior coursework that was completed at an accredited college or university evaluated for potential credit transfer into one of our college programs. You must have a minimum grade of “C,” and up to 75% of required credits may be transferred. If you wish to receive credit, contact the college you attended and request for your official transcript(s) to be sent to Penn Foster College for evaluation. All approved transfer credits will be deducted from your tuition.
Will my Penn Foster College credits transfer to other schools?
Penn Foster College credits have been accepted for transfer into colleges across the country. Students should check with a specific college to see if they accept our credits, as credit transfer can vary depending on the school. Also, the American Council on Education's College Credit Recommendation Service (ACE CREDIT) has evaluated and recommended college credit for many Penn Foster College courses. No form of accreditation guarantees that any learning institution will accept credits from any school as transfer credits. For more information on transferring credits, click here.
