Our program’s selling point is that SU has been ranked among the top schools for professional sales education. At SU, we help train the best of the best. Our students have won multiple awards in direct and interactive marketing competitions and placed top five in the nation in a marketing simulation game, among other prestigious titles.

Experiential learning on real business projects is also emphasized, and you may work with organizations in the community to practice what you learned in the classroom.

To be ranked by the Sales Education Foundation in only our third year of the program is a great honor … Those enrolled in the program are not only getting a top-flight sales education … they are making direct connections with potential employers, often receiving offers even before graduation.
