Each year, the Ball State University Sales Team competes in regional and national competitions. These events offer you the opportunity to compete with students from around the country in professional selling simulations. These competitions are usually sponsored and judged by business organizations wanting to recruit the best and brightest sales talent.

Ball State has an outstanding track record at these events, with a history of winning awards and earning our students recognition among Fortune 500 companies. In addition to trophies, recognition, and interviewing with top-notch companies, our students have won thousands of dollars in prize money.
