Professional Distinction in Sales
The Sales Leadership Institute aims to provide Texas A&M students the opportunity to develop sales skills by means of networking, training, and real-world experience. By participating in our events, not only are you gaining valuable skills, but you are also earning points toward a Professional Distinction in Sales.
For the distinction, you are required to earn 400 points spread among three categories. 100 of those points must be from networking, 100 must be from training and 100 must be from experience. The other 100 points are open for you to decide. For a list of the events and their points, see Summer Professional Distinction Opportunities
With your first semester distinction, you are awarded a Mays Business School name tag with a distinction ribbon. You may earn the Professional Distinction in Sales for four semesters, and once you do, you receive a medal to wear at your commencement ceremony. You may also state “Professional Distinction in Sales – one semester” (or up to four) on your resume.
