Acer along with MYRA School of Business launches Metamorph

A Two-Week Intensive Course for Acer’s Retail Sales Force

Acer, one of the largest technology brands in the world, successfully conducted ‘The Metamorph’ program in partnership with MYRA School of Business in Mysuru. The 2-weeks intensive program was developed with the aim of training the newly recruited Acer retail sales force in critical retailing and career skills. The program is a unique initiative in the industry, and a first of its kind, where the field sales force was trained in both job and career skills at one of the top business schools.

The curriculum included topics covering the retail industry and retailing trends, consumer behaviour, consultative selling, the sales process, and various self-development and behavioural skills for personal and career success. As part of the program, participants had an opportunity to apply the skills through experiential activities, simulations, and role plays to prepare them to succeed in the competitive retail environment. Graduating participants will be deployed at selected Acer stores to further their learning from customer experiences, physical layout, and technology integration.

At the launch of the program on June 8th, 2019, Mr. Harish Kohli, President and Managing Director, Acer India said, "We are delighted to partner with MYRA School of Business for the Metamorph programme. We realised that there is a need to prepare new graduates joining Acer with skills in demand. That is why this joint programme will help them to adapt to a quickly changing retail and sales environment by learning from one of the top business schools and experienced professionals. Acer believes in empowering people and this initiative will enable them to be more rounded professionals and excel in their careers.”

Dr. Prakash K Nair, Director of Research and Outreach at MYRA said, “In today’s fast paced business environment the need for quality skill development is extremely crucial to prepare professionals to compete, succeed, and stay ahead of the curve. We are really excited and glad to have partnered with Acer in conducting this rigorous skill development program for the fresh recruits of Acer’s retail sales team. MYRA School of Business is always committed to providing our learners with the best and most relevant content to help them build a strong career in their chosen industry; and Acer’s Metamorph, we are sure, will be both a professional and career enhancing experience for Acer’s new recruits.
