Original text: The Massmart Graduate Development Programme (MGDP) is aimed at ensuring that young talented graduates are given the right foundational knowledge and practical experience to become authentic future career retailers. Since 2007, the MGDP runs for a year and consists of a theory and practical component. The Wits Business School (WBS) and UCS Retail Academy partner with us to deliver a NQF level 7 accredited programme. The WBS programme equips graduates with foundational management skills and competencies, as well as entry level professional skills. We believe this combination will adequately prepare graduates for future roles in our organisation.
The MGDP is not only focused on educating graduates about the realities of the retail industry and the Massmart business, we also appreciate that graduates are new to the world of work and need assistance to transition successfully.
