Professional Sales, Minor

The minor in Professional Sales meets the need for specialized sales training for students with all majors.   The professional field of sales offers a variety of lucrative job opportunities. More than ten percent of all jobs in the U.S. are in sales, and this number is expected to grow in the future.  Sales is more than just the “pitch,” and positions are in demand for several reasons:  the volume of items on the internet are overwhelming; individuals desire to purchase from a real person; and during both economic upswings and downturns companies need to sell products and services.  In addition, the skillset – communication, problem-solving, persuasion, and adaptability – is valuable for any job and transferrable from one industry to another.
