Sales Leadership Institute
We are pleased to announce that the Professional Selling Initiative is now the Sales Leadership Institute at Texas A&M University.
Becoming an institute creates a platform for collaboration of sales educators and researchers to teach career and life skills and to further knowledge creation.
The near-term goals of the Sales Leadership Institute are to:
- Elevate students’ awareness of the sales career path and its job/salary growth potential
- Improve student job placement in sales positions through enhanced sales training, including expanded course offerings and high-impact learning experiences outside the classroom
- Meet employers’ growing demand for top sales talent by increasing the number of students who participate in our sales programming such as the Professional Selling and Sales Management track for Marketing majors and the Professional Distinction in Sales for all undergraduate students
- Expand sales training facilities with more role-play rooms supported by state-of-the-art technology
- Continue to build collaborative relationships around campus to enhance sales education and research
