These courses may count toward degree requirements for Marketing majors, as advanced business electives for other majors within business, or toward a minor in sales.
Benefits of the program include a bi-annual sales career fair, job placement, and an alumni association. The sales career fair is planned, sold, and run by students in the program. Some of Houston’s most prestigious companies attend this function to hire the best-trained sales professionals in the industry. In addition, positions are posted daily in the program office. The alumni association for PES grows every year, providing an ideal situation for sales students to network among themselves.
