Bradley University’s professional sales program has received national recognition on the Sales Education Foundation's list of “Top Universities for Professional Sales Education” for the eighth consecutive year.

“Placing on this list creates awareness for the Foster College of Business and awareness with recruiters and executives for our students,” said professional sales program director Mark Johlke.

The professional sales program provides hands-on realistic experiences through sales role-playing.

“Students receive personalized and targeted one-on-one feedback,” said marketing instructor Brad Eskridge. “Students in our program also gain exposure through multiple avenues such as receptions, critiques, interviews, class speakers and even sales professionals working in the industry today.”

SEF reports that sales programs nation-wide are averaging a 92 percent placement for students.  The current placement rate for Foster College professional selling graduates is 100 percent.  Recent graduates have joined companies such as ConAgra Foods, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, McAfee, Oracle and the HON Company.

The Foster College of Business’s Professional Sales Program is accredited by the Sales and Marketing Trainers Association and is a full member of the University Sales Alliance.
