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.

Sales Minor

The modern sales professional helps customers solve business problems through active listening, insightful questions, deep empathy, domain competency, and the understanding and communicating of value. 

The Sales Minor prepares students to start their career journey into sales by teaching them to sell themselves first, giving them the skills and experience to succeed in their first role. Required courses include a survey of marketing, foundations of personal selling, and advanced sales, alongside two electives and a sales experience.

Differentiate yourself from other students while developing skills that are transferable to any profession. The sales minor is open to all undergrad majors at the University of New Hampshire.

 “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.”
