Dedicated to Advancing the Sales Profession through Academics, Professional Experiences, and Research



The Center for Professional Selling is dedicated to promoting the field of professional sales to all UC students and developing graduates who are extremely prepared for a successful sales career. The Professional Selling minor is a great complement for students in other majors, like Finance, Fashion Design, Engineering or IT, to build upon and strengthen their career options. Each year more and more students declare a Professional Selling minor.  For students enrolled in the Lindner College of Business, a Professional Selling minor enhances the opportunities established in our PACE curriculum.

Similar to other programs in the Carl H. Lindner College of Business, the Center for Professional Selling combines classroom teaching with experiential learning to provide a unique opportunity for our students. We partner with industry representatives to offer a wide variety of engaging activities for both our students and corporate partners – mock interviews, elevator speech practice, classroom sales competitions, networking socials, workshops and the bi-annual Sales Expo. Each of these activities develop our students’ skills and helps prepare them for a prosperous career in sales.


Our courses include

  • Professional Selling
  • Strategic Business-to-Business Sales
  • Sales Management
  • Strategic Selling
  • Sales Practicum
  • Women in Sales
