More than 50% of college graduates will hold their initial job in sales.

Recent studies report the number of Marketing majors starting their career in sales tops 88%. MSU Denver’s Center for Professional Selling prepares students for sales careers through real world selling experience, role plays, interviews, networking events, national competitions, and other events for students and sales professionals.

MSU Denver was named one of the “Top Universities for Professional Sales Education” by the Sales Education Foundation — the only university in Colorado to receive this recognition and one of fewer than 100 institutions nationally.

 



Portrait of Professional Sales alumna Trish Mortel “I grew up playing sports so I knew The Sports Industry was a path I wanted to take after graduating. I am fortunate to be a part of the Sales team with the Colorado Avalanche. There’s no greater feeling than to be a part of a professional sports team especially in the city I grew up in!”

The teaching, hands-on training, and redefining of what a salesperson truly is led me to find my dream job in sales and helped separate me above and beyond from my peers and competition."
