About the Symposium
The symposium grew out of a new course that is being offered in Fashion Merchandising Management called "Merchandising for Omni Retailing." The course was written by Professor Jean Jacullo and partners with leading industry retailers, such as Brooks Brothers, Express, Gilt Groupe, J.Crew, Macy's, Nordstrom, and Urban Outfitters. The symposium is sponsored by the Jay and Patty Baker School of Business and Technology.
