Governance, Registered and Independents Clubs
Re-X is about reviving the Retail Experience through transforming perceptions and embracing changes in the world of commerce. We seek to expand our retail network among students and industry professionals by introducing them to the perfect pairing of the digital age and commerce. Our goal as a club is to empower the community to evolve in their retail expertise and embark on a journey with us in reviving the retail experience. In collaboration with SMU RCoE and its 9 founders - DFS, DBS, Decathlon, Harvey Norman, Ikea, Microsoft, Popular, Tiffany & Co. and Visa, Re-X is the pioneer retail-based CCA in SMU.

With the opportunities offered by Re-X to pick up consulting skills and connect with industry's professionals, I feel very excited and motivated to be part of Re-X as I believe it will be a fruitful and valuable experience.
