The modern sales professional helps customers solve business problems through active listening, asking questions, deep empathy, domain competency, and the understanding and communicating of value. UNH Sales has designed academic and experiential activities that immerse participants in the sales environment, to ensure our students build the necessary competencies and confidence.

Professional Sales Group

The Professional Sales Group is an elite experiential sales and leadership course where students train for, compete in, and host sales competitions and business networking events. These sales role-plays use real business case scenarios to simulate selling experiences.

The student sales team travels to Florida, Maryland, Rhode Island, Tennessee, and NY/NJ for intercollegiate competitions as well as regionally in its own Elite Competition Series with top partner companies. An officer corps is responsible for structuring and coordinating the group through a competitive application process.

The course provides students a supportive environment and experiential setting to develop and hone their consultative selling, partnering, and relationship building skills.  Students in good standing may retake course up to a maximum of 12 credits.

 “Great salespeople aren’t necessarily ‘born.’ They’re also ‘made.’ A hallmark of sales education at UNH is its collaborative spirit among students, faculty and our partner organizations. Together, we learn about our strengths and weaknesses so that we can zoom in on how to improve.”
