STATESBORO — The Georgia Southern College of Business Administration has been recognized as one of the top universities for professional sales education in the country by the Sales Education Foundation.
In the ninth edition of the foundation’s annual magazine, SEF listed Georgia Southern as one of the programs that provides a university sales education while preparing and placing future talent in professional selling roles.
SEF conducted an annual survey, and the College of Business Administration sales program distinguished itself through offering a specialty area, participating in a sales competition, offering a sales lab for students and having a 100 percent job-placement rate for students in the program.
“We are gratified to see the collaboration of seasoned programs providing insight and support to these dedicated academics with a vision to deliver quality sales education to their committed students,” SEF Executive Director Sally Stevens said.
Founded in 2006, the Center for Sales Excellence, housed within the College of Business Administration, has more than
200 students and offers accreditation through the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, University Sales Center Alliance, and is a full member of Global Sales Science Institute.
Georgia Southern University and all of its programs are accredited through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
The College of Business Administration has undergraduate and graduate accreditation through AACSB International: The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Only about five percent of all colleges of business have AACSB accreditation.
