Center for Professional Selling

Welcome to the WKU Center for Professional Selling Website. Our Sales Program is one of thirteen Fully Certified Sales Programs in the United States as a member of the University Sales Center Alliance. This certification is conducted by both business (Professional Society for Sales & Marketing Training) and academic (USCA) elements. The WKU Center for Professional Selling is the only certified program in the State of Kentucky in addition to the regional states of Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Missouri, and West Virginia.

Sales Center Goals

This Center was formed by WKU in July 2007 with two specific goals:

  1. Education Focus:  Enhance the perception of the sales profession while preparing students for a career in sales.  Development of appropriate curriculum to include a Major and Minor in Sales.
  2. Business Focus: Strengthen the relationship between WKU and Corporations.  Develop partnerships with corporations to provide real-world classroom activities in addition to internship or full-time employment opportunities.

Since 2007, our growth has been outstanding! We have grown our majors and minors over 250% since inception of the Sales Center, and our minor has gone from 0 (in 2007) to 106 (spring 2011). Within that minor, over 20 different majors are represented ranging from finance, PR, broadcasting and religious studies.
