Sales Educators' Academy

Sales education is becoming increasingly important for today’s college of business graduates.  According to a recent study by the H.R. Chally Group, 82% of all marketing majors and 66% of ALL college of business students are headed for a sales related job. While a host of conferences provide resources to sales faculty to conduct and present sales research, no such program exists for the purpose of exchanging best practices in teaching sales.

The Sales Educators’ Academy (SEA) hosted in partnership with the Crummer Graduate School of Business at Rollins College, Florida State University, and the Sales Education Foundation, seeks to address this challenge. The goal of the SEA is to help sales educators of all experience levels improve their ability to teach sales students the skills and knowledge that these students will need upon graduating from business school.

  • Building the Perfect Sales Curriculum
  • Experiential Learning in Sales Education
  • Student Placement: Tips on Getting Students to Companies They Love (and Who Love Them Back)
  • Customer Relationship Management (CRM): It’s Not Just Technology
  • “Your Syllabus Says What?” Great Ideas on Structuring Specific Sales Courses
  • And more!  

Who is it for?

  • Experienced sales educators seeking to re-tool their course curriculum.
  • Clinical faculty who may have valuable sales experience but who would like to learn more about how to leverage this experience in the college classroom.
  • Instructors new to sales teaching.
  • Educators who are considering starting or who have recently started a sales center at his/her university.
