University Sales Competitions

Unique Events Showcase the Next Generation of Sales Professionals

University Sales competitions attract top sales students who refine their classroom skills in exciting competitive atmospheres. Sales competitions vary in format - role-play, team selling, speed selling, virtual and elevator pitch. These competitions feature opportunities for recruiters to meet the future generation of sales professionals and see them in action. Check out our Events page for the most current listing of competitions and links to their website.

SEF also features a list of major competitions in each edition of the SEF Annual. SEF defines “major” competitions as those that accept student competitors from multiple universities. SEF’s Sales Competition feature provides locations, website addresses and contact information on each major competition.

Check out where these competitions are taking place, connect with the dedicated people and coordinate your opportunity to be a part of an event!

Sales competitions also provide opportunities for sponsor companies to network directly with competing students. Many competitions include corporate mixers, career fairs and networking receptions. Some competitions feature golf tournaments and theme park tickets as added benefits.
