The Center for Professional Selling offers a variety of opportunities for students currently pursuing a major in sales or a sales minor. Instructors who have professional sales experience primarily teach our sales courses, which are designed to give you both a theoretical and practical understanding of professional selling, business communication, and sales related technology.
Sales students can also take advantage of the USCA Sales Certification. The purpose of the Certified Sales Student Achievement program is to offer university students the opportunity to receive recognition for going beyond minimal course requirements in preparing themselves for successful sales jobs and careers. Completing the process required to receive this certification helps participants to differentiate themselves from other students in the sales employment market. Similarly, by denoting exceptional commitment and achievement, the program assists employers in identifying the best candidates for sales positions nationwide and around the world. Any college student can earn this certificate of achievement by meeting the required coursework with authorized faculty and completing the extracurricular experience requirements presented below. The University Sales Center Alliance, a consortium of recognized and accredited sales programs across the Nation, sponsors the Certified Sales Student designation. See the criteria for the certification or complete the application. Email the completed application or deliver to WB307.
Students can also benefit from joining student organizations such as Pi Sigma Epsilon, the Student Sales Advisory Board, and the sales team. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
