The practical and informative classes not only aided in preparing me for professional sales work, but for interviews and the professional world in itself.

"Joining the Sales Society was single handedly the best decision I made while at FIU. The knowledge and experience I gained has proven invaluable. Without the skills I learned, I would not have landed the job I have today. I strongly recommend that any student join the Sales Program and participate in the competitions. The real life experience you gain has no price. All I regret is not getting involved earlier!"

"The Sales and Customer Relationship Management certificate was well worth my time and efforts in my undergraduate journey at FIU. The practical knowledge I received, paired with Dr. Nancy Rauseo's superb mentorship, enabled me to impress potential employers and obtain multiple job offers days before graduation. Much of the on-thejob training and orientation process is exactly what students are exposed to in the curriculum, and this is what makes sales students highly competitive in the professional world."
