Did you know… nearly 40% of the customer’s selection of a vendor is based on the added value the salesperson brings to the relationship.

Sales program graduates come to the workforce armed with real-world experience, strong career goals, intense dedication and the tools and talent to contribute to their organizations from day one. According to a survey of sales managers:

  • Sales program graduates ramp up 50% faster than their non-sales educated peers
  • New hires from sales programs turnover 30% less
  • Sales program graduates save their recruiting companies an average of $180,000 per hire when compared to other recent graduates

Find the “Top Universities for Professional Sales Education” listing in our ANNUAL magazine, providing useful data on programs dedicated to developing the future sales professional. Each program has met SEF criteria for Top program status. Within the listing can be found information on:

  • Program website
  • The best contact and their email address
  • How many students in the program and when did the program begin
  • Accreditation(s)
  • Does the program have an area of Focus
  • What the program offers

In addition to our Top program listing, we give universities that “provide opportunities for students to obtain some classroom training and/or practical experience specific to professional sales,” a place in our “Other Notable Programs” section.

University sales programs rely on the support of companies interested in finding top talent and developing partnerships. While each program’s sponsor package is unique, corporate sponsors can gain opportunities to speak directly to classes, participate in Career Fairs, or serve on Advisory Boards.
