Center for Professional Selling

The Baylor Business Sell-Off (BBSO) allows Baylor students to see how they "stack up" against their peers. The BBSO also allows our Corporate Partners and other interested parties to get a "sneak peek" at Baylor's talent as they prepare to enter the job market.

Competition for the BBSO is open to current Baylor students. Each competitor must register to participate in the competition.

Registration for the January 31, 2014 BBSO is closed.

Overview

Each BBSO competitor makes a sales call in a 20-minute role play with a corporate Buyer. Competitors receive a Competitor Scenario and Buyers receive a Buyer Scenario explaining each person's roles, the product being sold and the details of the interaction prior to the role play. It is important for each participant to be familiar with the scenario, the product being sold and the judging criteria prior to competition.

The competitor will be stopped after 20 minutes, regardless of whether the presentation is complete or not. Each role play is recorded by in-room cameras and judged virtually by a panel of corporate executives and Baylor faculty members.

In addition, top performers are awarded cash prizes.
