"...among sales personnel hired over a 10-year period, those coming from sales education programs hit the break-even point in their territories 30% faster. Moreover, their tenure with the company averaged 40% longer."
(Harvard Business Review, July-August 2012, p. 96)
One key reason Baylor's Center for Professional Selling has been able to provide outstanding growth and development opportunities for ProSales students is due to the support and commitment of its Corporate Partners and Corporate Sponsors.
Corporate Partners are companies and company representatives who have committed time and financial resources towards the work of the Center for Professional Selling. Corporate Partnerships are vital to the success of the Center for Professional Selling. Depending on their interests, Corporate Partners have the opportunity to:
- Engage in strong brand-building opportunities through on-campus promotions, sponsored events, speaking engagements and company information sessions
- Gain pre-screened access to qualified job candidates through sponsored networking and career fair events, and through job/internship interview opportunities
- Make an impact in the lives of students on campus and with the next generation of sales professionals
Corporate Sponsors are companies and company representatives who are looking to engage with the Center for Professional Selling specifically through our Career Fair and interviewing opportunities.
Other Ways to Get Involved
Companies can also get involved with the Center in other, mutually beneficial areas, including participation in the Marketing and Professional Selling Career Fair, the Baylor Business Sell-Off, the annual ProSales Golf Links golf tournament, mentoring through our Ambassador Board, and through a number of other unique opportunities.
