The Corporate Partners Program

The BU Professional Sales Program’s Corporate Partners are a limited number of highly select firms that serve as an important link between the professional selling field and Bradley students and faculty.  As the demands and responsibilities of sales professionals constantly change, it is crucial that faculty and students interact with and learn from practicing sales professionals from different fields. By doing so, students in the Professional Sales Program and all sales classes will develop a better understanding of the unique challenges and opportunities that professional salespeople face.

The firms that make up the Corporate Partners represent the wide range of industries and positions that value the skills and knowledge students develop in the BU Professional Sales Program. Representatives from the Corporate Partner firms are the only ones allowed to meet with Bradley sales classes as class speakers and as co-teachers in their particular areas of expertise and experience. In addition, Corporate Partners actively support the BU Professional Sales Program by recruiting BU students for internships and full-time positions, their financial contributions, and their participation in a variety of activities including social receptions and the BU Sales Contest held at the end of the fall semester.
