Learn how professional sales is much more than selling.
The Professional Sales Certificate program at WSU Vancouver prepares students for marketing careers in professional sales and customer account management. Open to all majors, the program can help you develop the skills needed for any type of persuasive communication. Throughout your career you will find yourself selling:
- Your ideas to colleagues, clients and community members
- Yourself to employers
- A product or service to customers or clients
Combining the certificate with your major can enhance your prospects for immediate employment. Many university graduates find their first professional position in sales, and professional sales is the most common entry-level position for marketing majors.
The sales program collaborates closely with leading local businesses to help you learn from hands-on experience.
