"Baylor ProSales students are excellent additions to our sales team," said Rob Broomham, Vice President of Sales at Occidential Chemical Corporation (#125, Fortune 500). "Their transition into professional selling roles have been ahead of schedule, and their selling skills preparation and training exceeds our expectations."

Students in Baylor's Professional Selling program average 3.2 job offers each, earn an average GPA of 3.3, and achieve 100% placement upon graduation.
