Hi everyone! My name is Lizzie Wierdsma and I'm a senior majoring in Retail at UW-Madison. I am beyond excited to have this amazing opportunity! I cannot wait to immerse myself within the Chinese culture and can't wait to meet everyone on the trip! I am looking forward to learning more about the supply chain and product development process as we travel the country. I have recently accepted a position as a Merchandise Analyst Trainee with Kohl's after I graduate, so this trip will be extremely beneficial in my future career with the company.
I want to thank Kohl's, Li & Fung, and the Kohl's Center for Retailing Excellence for this invaluable experience. I will make the most of every second I am there!
The Center highlights and promotes the retail industry and business as a positive and prestigious career choice for students. We bridge the gap between students and employers by stimulating connections and providing networking opportunities. The Center reaches beyond the retail major into other specialties to provide the best of the best in educated undergraduate and graduate students. Our promotion throughout the campus draws the attention of our brightest students to look at retail first. We look to deepen the relationship with our partners by offering access to all of our diverse majors.
