Fifth Annual Sales Competition a Success!

We are excited to announce the Gatton College of Business and Economics hosted its Fifth Annual Sales Competition. This competition allowed students to engage in 20-minute sales scenarios, where they showcased their skills to pitch Dell Small Business products to corporate buyers in simulated role-plays. A panel of corporate sales professionals evaluated contestants based on their sales techniques, communication skills, and overall performance.
