The Sales Leadership Center provides students with an opportunity to learn sales
skills in a classroom environment through interactive workshops and earn the Sales Leadership Center's
Certificate of Professional Sales. By earning the Certificate, students have the
opportunity to show prospective employers their commitment to expand their sales
