Certified Retail Analyst Program

ATTN: NWACC's goal is to provide a safe campus without compromising your learning experience. Learn more.

Due to a partnership among Walmart, the supplier community and NWACC, the Certified Retail Analyst (CRA) program offers a six-course path to develop a proficiency in supply chain and retail fundamentals as well as data mining and analysis to create goals and recommended actions.

This is a competency-based, retail industry training program that provides students with live access to Walmart's Retail Link Decision Support system as well as a day-in-the-life analyst experience.

As a CRA graduate, you will qualify for entry level work as an analyst with Walmart and the supplier community. To date, 87% of our graduates report finding employment while in the program or within one year.

Financial assistance is available for those who qualify. Visit the CRA payments and refunds web page for more information.
