2012 Top University Sales Program

Posted on: July 6, 2012

Top Sales UniversitiesI am pleased to announce that MSU's sales communication program has been named among the Top University Sales Program for 2012 by the Sales Education Foundation (SEF).  Ironically, 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.  
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—at MSU, we have a 100% job placement rate among our sales grads.
We launched our sales program in 2009 and are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools ofBusiness (AACSB).  Our 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. Our corporate sponsors help us to reach our goals while building relationships with industry leaders.
We are very proud of our sales specialization program, our sales students and faculty and we look forward to continuing to provide the education and preparation necessary to maintain our tremendous job placement rate.
