STATESBORO, Ga. (July 29, 2015) – The Georgia Southern College of Business has been recognized as one of the top universities for professional sales education in the country by the Sales Education Foundation (SEF).

In the ninth edition of the foundation’s annual magazine, SEF listed Georgia Southern as one of the programs that provides a university sales education while preparing and placing future talent in professional selling roles. SEF conducted an annual survey, and the College of Business sales program distinguished itself through offering a specialty area, participating in a sales competition, offering a sales lab for students, and having a 100 percent job placement rate for students in the program.

Founded in 2006, the Center for Sales Excellence, housed within the College of Business, has more than 200 students and offers accreditation through the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International), University Sales Center Alliance (USCA), and is a full member of Global Sales Science Institute (GSSI). Georgia Southern is also the only university to award Huthwaite’s Academic SPIN Selling Certification.

SEF is pleased to see the rapid growth of sales education programs at universities across the U.S. “We are gratified to see the collaboration of seasoned programs providing insight and support to these dedicated academics with a vision to deliver quality sales education to their committed students,” said SEF Executive Director Sally Stevens.

Georgia Southern University and all of its programs are accredited through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.  The College of Business has undergraduate and graduate accreditation through AACSB International:  The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Only about five percent of all colleges of business have AACSB accreditation.

Georgia Southern University, a public Carnegie Doctoral/Research University founded in 1906, offers more than 125-degree programs serving more than 20,500 students. Through eight colleges, the University offers bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree programs built on more than a century of academic achievement. Georgia Southern is recognized for its student-centered and hands-on approach to education.
