Franchising is an expansive method of distribution that is used by over 150 distinct industries. While there are commonalities across franchisors and within industries, many franchise professionals only get to understand the dynamics of franchising through the lens of their company or a handful of common approaches used by franchisors in their industry. This can often have a chilling effect on a company’s ability to strengthen their current franchise offerings and can also limit an individual’s mobility and career opportunities in the franchise space. This program is an essential addition to the learnings made available in the IFA’s CFE classes and is based on the graduate school course on franchising offered at The Ohio State University, which is now part of the IFA’s CFE program. Emerging franchisors that need to make decisions on how to structure their franchise system; Executives new to franchising and beginning to advance in their careers; Experienced franchisors who want to broaden their understanding of domestic franchise laws, regulations and trademarks and how other franchise systems manage, support, communicate, make changes, provide training and manuals, and grow their franchise systems domestically and internationally; and, Franchisees that want to add concepts to their portfolio or learn how to manage a multi-unit network.
