The Marketing Center Muenster announces their recognition by the Sales Education Foundation (SEF) as a “Top Universities for Professional Sales Education” program in their 2017 ANNUAL magazine. SEF recognizes the Marketing Center Muenster for preparing students for successful careers in professional selling and helping to elevate the sales profession.

Professional Sales/Selling is one of the most common jobs for students graduating with a sales degree. Recent research suggests that 60 % of all business majors and 88 % of all marketing majors begin their professional careers in a sales-related role.
Sally Stevens, Executive Director of the Sales Education Foundation, noted that companies should have an increased focus on partnering with university sales programs and hiring their graduates. In her 2017 Annual Letter from the Editor she notes, “Candidates from these (sales) programs are more prepared to align with their initial sales roles and to compete in the ever-changing global economy.”
