Nestled within the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s College of Business is the Center for Sales Excellence, a program designed to produce and nurture the understanding and proficiency of sales within top students in the college.
Named a “Top University for Professional Sales Education” by the Sales Education Foundation since 2015, the Center for Sales Excellence is designed to complement any Nebraska student’s academic path by offering, upon completion of the 15-credit program, a sales certificate.
The center offers cutting-edge resources to its participants, such as the role-play lab, hosting seven role-play rooms, each equipped with recording technology. The role-play lab allows for students to role-play, record and review their sales skills. The lab also allows students to download their role-plays for review, critique and digital resumes to share with future employers.
The Center for Sales Excellence also offers experience-based learning to its students, providing opportunities to put student skills to the test in competitions around the country. During these competitions, participants demonstrate their skills in front of real-world professionals.
“A lot of it was much more detailed than anything I’ve done so far in my classes,” explains junior marketing and finance major Drew Shafer. “It felt a lot more real.”
The Center for Sales Excellence aims to provide students with an immersive, in-depth look at careers that hinge on sales proficiency, something that classes alone are unable to provide. Drew continues, “being able to take advantage of that opportunity was a big deal for me.”
Donating to the University of Nebraska and its students provides brighter opportunities for the UNL community and creates a web of generational trust between past and present Huskers. Please consider making a gift today to help us provide more opportunities like these to UNL students.
