Sales Education Foundation recognizes Georgia Southern’s sales program

Sales Education Foundation (SEF) has recognized Georgia Southern University’s Center for Sales Excellence in the Parker College of Business as a “Top University Sales Program” for 2019. SEF has recognized the university’s efforts in preparing students for successful careers in professional selling and evaluating the sales profession since 2011.

According to a survey of sales managers, sales program graduates “ramp up” 50 percent faster than their non-sales educated peers and experience 30 percent less turnover in their field.

The Center for Sales Excellence boasts a 98 percent job placement rate for its sales students. Students participate throughout the year in various regional and national competitions and have access to a sales laboratory, giving them valuable experiences that help them succeed after graduation.

Founded in 2006, the Center for Sales Excellence has more than 200 students and offers accreditation through the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International), full membership in the University Sales Center Alliance, and offers its students membership in the professional fraternity, Pi Sigma Epsilon, for marketing and sales management industry professionals. Georgia Southern is also the only university to award Huthwaite’s Academic SPIN® Selling Certification. SPIN® Selling is one of the most iconic and revered sales methodologies in the world.
