Winona State University has been accepted as an associate member of the University Sales Center Alliance, joining 21 full members and 15 associate members across the country.
The primary benefit of membership is the ability to network and share teaching and research ideas with faculty serving in sales centers throughout the country.
WSU established a business-to-business sales center, the Center for Sales Excellence, in December 2013 and a Professional Selling minor in the Department of Marketing in fall 2011.
The Center for Sales Excellence will open a new training facility in spring 2015. This facility will include a classroom designed and equipped specifically for teaching sales theory and fundamental communication skills necessary throughout business.
