Seven students from the Professional Selling Program will be traveling to Kennesaw State University this weekend to compete in the National Collegiate Sales Competition (NCSC). The event is the oldest and largest sales competition in the nation, as nearly 50 colleges compete each year. UCF team members include competitors Josh Calcanis and George Cardona, and team alternates Sasha EffronRicardo HernandezDaryl MorrowNichole Soros, and Kendall Wulff. They are coached by marketing instructor and sales consultantNicole Moberg and have been preparing for the competition since last November. The group practices at least three times a week by role-playing with other members of the team and learning more about NetSuite CRM, the product that they will be selling in the competition. They also invite a guest coach from the sales industry regularly to act as a buyer and provide feedback to the competitors. Past UCF teams have done well in the competition including winning first place as a team in 2002 and securing a first place student award in 2008. The Professional Selling Program at UCF is one of approximately 40 programs in the country that gives its students real life experience into the world of selling. Just 30 students are accepted each year. For more information on the program, visit the Professional Selling website.
