The UCF College of Business Administration (#UCFBusiness)’s Professional Selling Program has been recognized as a “Top Universities for Professional Sales Education” program. The Sales Education Foundation (SEF) will release the 2015 Annual, featuring this highly-anticipated listing, by the end of April. These university programs are recognized for preparing students for careers in professional selling and helping to elevate the sales profession.

The Professional Selling Program is a prestigious, specialized program offered by the college’s Department of Marketing. The competitive program accepts no more than 35 exceptional students each year that show potential and promise in the sales field.

Students from sales programs average 2.8 job offers before graduation.
