The University of Texas at Tyler

Center for Retail Enterprises

The Center for Retail Enterprises (CRE) is presented by the UT Tyler College of Business and Technology to provide continuing education and professional development to the retail community, with a strong emphasis toward small business retailers.

Retailers can look forward to having access to a knowledge base of issues affecting the East Texas Region through seminars, courses, consulting projects and electronic newsletters.

CRE programs include the annual Retail Summit, a community event featuring speakers with vast knowledge on retail and service issues, and the UT Tyler Retail Lab, a first-of-its-kind facility providing hands-on experience for students interested in retail management.
