"MSU is the only university that recognizes the integral role of communication within an undergraduate sales program. The sales communication program is unique at MSU because it is the only known program jointly administered by the College of Communication Arts & Sciences and the Broad College of Business," said Dean Whitten.

The SEF, a nonprofit dedicated to the advancement of sales education, reviews the existing university sales programs each year and selects programs that demonstrate a strong sales curriculum, university recognition and support and the opportunity for experiential learning, such as internships.

According to the SEF, job placement rates for sales students are occurring at twice the average for college graduates-MSU has a 100 percent job placement rate among sales alumni.

The sales program was launched in 2009 and is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). The interdisciplinary program is highly competitive and includes MSU students from a variety of majors. In addition to a rigorous and innovative curriculum, each student is required to complete a minimum of 500 hours of experiential learning, including a 300-hour professional sales internship. Corporate sponsors help the program reach its goals while building relationships with industry leaders.

"We are very proud of our sales specialization program, our sales students and faculty. We look forward to continuing to provide the education and preparation necessary to maintain our tremendous job placement rate," said Dean Pamela Whitten.
