Engagement in the Center for Professional Selling and Sales Technology
- By honing one’s sales skills, students provide themselves with greater potential opportunities in participating in the marketplace. However, coursework alone, similar to any degree or certificate, does not ensure success. Internships, participation in extra-curricular activities, and professional networking also are critical. As such, the Center for Professional Selling and Sales Technology invites students to be highly active AND engaged in its activities and events.
