Bachelor's Degree in Professional Strategic Selling

B.S. in professional strategic selling

Students earning a degree in professional strategic selling develop the skills needed to hit the ground running in any sales organization.

The curriculum places great emphasis on the use of role-plays to prepare students for the realities of the sales role. Through role-playing students can apply the theoretical lessons learned in the classroom. Students who don't major in sales have the opportunity to earn a certificate in professional strategic selling.
