Sales Certificate Course Requirements

  • Sales Management
  • Professional Selling Principles
  • Advanced Selling (Negotiation, Technology, Job Shadowing, etc.)
  • Course covering industry structure (ex, Intro to Distribution, financial markets, etc)


Networking & Internship Opportunities

Networking events allow students contact with business partners before graduation. The networking opportunities help socialize the students and let businesses get to know the students before traditional job interviews.

Internships are very important for students with little professional experience. As an urban university, some students are already working in professional sales settings, and therefore will not require an internship. For the remainder of the students, internships focusing on sales are available on a year-round basis.
