Professional Selling & Sales Management
Contact Hours / Week:
Sales management focuses on the activities of first line field sales managers. Students must know how salespeople perform their jobs, and how salespeople interact with customers and prospects. Today's business environment demands broader knowledge and skills than ever before from sales managers. Since most of the students start their career as salespeople, they need to understand the role of the sales manager to better function in their jobs and to prepare themselves for their first promotion opportunity.
The objective of this course is to have you develop skills and abilities that allow you to manage your sales territories as your own business, and provide you with a set of unique tool that you will develop to enable you to build successful sales and management careers.
Effective management of sales people is critical to business success because many goods and services demand personal contacts to close the sale. However, the cost of calls is growing rapidly and sales managers must know how to handle these resources effectively. Sales calls are a key weapon in the marketing game, and managers of the future will need experiences in this area if they expect to move up the executive career ladder.
