Accredited, Certified & Acclaimed

The professional sales degree program received the Georgia Board of Regents' Teaching Excellence Award in 2007. The program is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB) (the leading accrediting organization in the US) and is certified by the Professional Society for Sales and Marketing Training.


An Academic Leader

The Center for Professional Sales is one of nine founding members of the University Sales Center Alliance, advancing the sales profession through academic leadership.


A Rewarding Profession

Selling is the engine that drives business and makes significant contributions to the growth and development of the local, national, and worldwide economy.

Do you think you would be good at sales? Success is built on listening to customers and prospects, building relationships with them over time, and understanding and solving needs.

Successful sales professionals take the time to learn and fully understand their customers and then determine how to provide the best solution for those needs. As a sales professional you can enjoy freedom in your schedule, make a difference in the businesses and lives of your customers, and have the opportunity to earn an excellent income.

“Every day, I get to build relationships with so many people and I have fun working and living in my favorite city.  Being active in the  sales program at KSU made this possible. I have always wanted to find a way to stand apart from the crowd and prove that I was not just an average college student, rather a serious young professional that’s hungry for a challenge.”
