Our 15th Anniversary Issue of the SEF Annual

The SEF Annual features the most comprehensive list of university sales education programs worldwide – the “Top Universities for Professional Sales Education.” Our 15th Anniversary issue embraces the theme “Professional Sales: Past, Present, and Future.” Enjoy reading about the history of sales as our feature article traces the origins of the profession. As you explore our 2021 edition you’ll find information on SEF research grant recipients, our new scholarship fund and the first recipients.

We highlight present day university and professional writers with articles on immersion boot camps, virtual selling and sales myths. The future looks bright indeed as students role play with a bot and others focus on increasing diversity in sales. We also feature University Sales Competitions with a directory of all the major events beginning on page 42.

Within the “Top Sales” listing are 158 US-based and 18 International featured Professional Sales programs with live links to each and every university listed. Be sure to visit the university spots throughout. You’ll also see 24 of our “Other Notables” on the last listing page.

Our Annual is a free, downloadable resource for recruiters, educators, sales organizations and everyone interested in learning more about Professional Sales education.
