Sales Minor (with Certificate in Professional Sales)

The Sales Minor is an 18 hour academic program available for undergraduates of any major who want to develop skills in professional selling.  Students completing the minor will also earn the Certificate in Professional Sales.  The Sales Minor and Certificate in Professional Sales will be an indication to prospective employers that you have proficiency in selling skills, making you a more attractive prospect for sales and other communications-oriented positions.

Sales can be a great long term career, an entry point into a company of interest or a transitional job while waiting for a target position in another career area to become available.  Demand for salespeople continues to be strong and research shows that graduates of university sales programs have a 30% lower turnover rate and a 50% faster ramp up time.
