The Neiman Marcus Executive Development Program (EDP) is the envy of other retailers. We train and orient you to all aspects of our brand of luxury retailing.  Our program provides you with the tools needed to be a successful assistant buyer within our merchant organization.

The intensive twelve-week training program is a full-time position that, upon completion, leads to placement as an assistant buyer with one of our business divisions based in the metropolitan Dallas/Fort Worth area.  The program is a combination of classroom training and buying offices rotations. Our comprehensive approach provides hands-on teaching and newly learned skills are applied in the setting of an actual buying office. Assistant buyers interact daily with stores, vendors and senior executives.

In the Executive Development Program you will learn:

  • Theories and analytical approaches to running a business
  • Systems used within our merchant organization
  • Neiman Marcus corporate culture

EDP provides the foundation for building a career as a merchant at Neiman Marcus. We integrate store management, buying and merchandise planning to give you a better understanding of roles and responsibilities. Analytical, organizational and communications skills are keys to success.

Neiman Marcus is committed to the excellence of the Executive Development Program. Skills learned during the program will prepare you for your role as an assistant buyer. As your training advances, so do you. And as you advance, so does your career. It’s the beginning of a successful merchant career at Neiman Marcus.  There is no limit to how far you can go and what you can do.
