Skills that translate to every career.

“More than 50% of college graduates will have a career in sales; however, less than 1% of students in the U.S. have formal sales training.” – Harvard Business Review

At the Sales Center in the TCU Neeley School of Business, we connect students to experienced faculty, partners and executives who lead in-class educational sessions. Through these relationships, students receive personal coaching and mentoring, preparing them for quality careers upon graduation.

Our hands-on, consultative approach mirrors real-world sales problems, competitions, quotas, and customer prospecting, giving students the skill set, knowledge and edge they need to thrive in a career in sales.
