3rd Annual CBE Sales Competition

Friday, Oct. 20, 2017
Stephens Hall
Start time: 7:30 a.m.


$1,500 for First Place
$1,000 for Second Place
$500 for Third Place

The first and second place winners will travel to Atlanta, Georgia to compete in the National Collegiate Sales Competition in April. 

How it Works

Contestants receive product information two weeks in advance and prepare for a 20-minute sales meeting with a potential “buyer.” Participants are judged on their execution of the sales process by sales professionals.

Why Participate

No experience or interest in sales as a career is necessary to participate! It’s a great opportunity to get hands-on experience, network with sales professionals, and potentially land a job interview with one of the participating companies.
