The Center for Sales Excellence (CSE) at La Salle University serves as a nexus for students, faculty and sales professionals to address current and future challenges facing the sales profession.
The sales program at La Salle goes back 20 years and had its official launch in 2016 when the Business School moved to a new state-of-the art building at our current location in Founders’ Hall. The CSE provides opportunities for research, mentorships, internships, curriculum development, and professional sales training. La Salle sales students must serve as interns, do ride a-longs, have sales mentors, participate in and experience real-world role plays, study personal selling, advanced sales, sales management and learn key CRM tools.
By sponsoring the Center for Sales Excellence at La Salle University, your company is partnering in the education process of future sales professionals. Your support allows direct access to various opportunities to engage with students in sales competitions, classroom presentations, and mentoring and internships.
Sponsoring companies partner with our CSE to train students, gain access to the “best fit” individuals for internships and full-time employment. Our Sales Advisory Board members review best practices in sales training and technology and help craft the vision for developing our sales curriculum.
Sponsorship opportunities are available with different benefits from Platinum Explorers ($20,000), Gold Explorers ($10,000), Silver Explorer ($5,000), to Bronze Explorer ($2,500). Sponsorships are from June 1 to May 31, with a minimum two-year commitment. The number of Platinum Explorers are limited to no more than three.
Top-level sponsorship benefits range from having your company name and information used in sales class activities to company-named awards to the top two professional selling students to having your company showcased in our twice a year CSE Sales Championship. Other benefits include placement of interns, class presentations to sales students each semester, seats on the CSE Advisory Board, and recognition on the CSE website.
