Corporate Partners

Our corporate sponsors are the lifeblood of the Center for Global Sales Leadership. We could not exist without their generosity and belief in what we do. This relationship has great benefits for our sponsors as well. In its most basic form, by partnering with us, they get access to some of the world's brightest business students (through our Global Sales Workshop) as well as to faculty members conducting cutting-edge sales research.

We all learn from each other as we strive to make our marks on the field of global sales. In fact, we've made it our mission to forge partnerships with corporations that will:

  • enable the Center to sponsor programs and events to increase student awareness of and an interest in professional selling and sales management careers
  • enable the Center to develop innovative teaching materials and methods to better prepare students to excel in sales and marketing careers
  • stimulate the creation and dissemination of innovative approaches to the sales and marketing challenges of the 21st century
  • enhance the professionalism of the sales profession by instilling in our students professional, ethical values, perspectives, and skills
