Sales communication students honored at National Team Selling Competition

Sales communication students

MSU’s National Team Selling Competition team finished second in its bracket, for an overall finish among the top six teams. This event draws together sales teams from universities across the United States to apply their experience and classroom knowledge in a realistic selling situation. The two-day competition includes both an initial sales call in which the selling team identifies company needs and establishes a relationship with the client, as well as a formal sales presentation to the entire client buying center. Students interacted with and were judged by sales professionals from Altria and 3M. Altria is also a current sponsor of the MSU Sales Program.

The team competed against 20 other teams from some of the top sales programs in the country.
