The Center for Professional Selling engages students, professionals, and businesses through:

Investing in the future of sales

Naming options and other ways to support the next generation of sales professionals.

National Collegiate Sales Competition

A national stage to showcase your polish and your professionalism.

Stuart Smith"When I declared Professional Sales as my major I had very little idea of what I wanted to do, or how to get there, but this program has given me all of that. Everyone in the Center for Professional Selling, from the professors to students, all share the same goal: to reshape the face of professional sales by helping clients find and understand their needs.  The skills I have gathered here have prepared me to step into my career and hit the ground running. It has given me opportunities to build relationships with influential people and company decision makes that I never knew were possible. It has arguably made the largest impact to my personal and professional future than any other decision I've made thus far. The CPS, is for me, more than a means to graduate, it has become my direction and passion. This is all possible because I was lead by individuals that believe in what they are doing and doing what they love."
