The Professional Selling Track is a prestigious, specialized program offered by the Department of Marketing in the UCF College of Business Administration. The competitive program accepts no more than 35 exceptional students each year that show potential and promise in the fascinating and lucrative field of sales. One of only approximately 50 specialized sales undergraduate programs in the nation, the Professional Selling Track is at the forefront in preparing students for successful careers in the competitive job market of today. Admitted students will partake in rigorous sales training and preparation during the program’s one-year duration. The track requires no additional time at UCF; students simply tailor their class schedules to incorporate the required sales courses, offered only to those admitted into the program. The core curriculum includes Professional Selling, Sales Force Management, Advanced Professional Selling, and Strategic Issues in Sales. The program commences every August and a new set of students graduate every May. Additionally, students are paired with a professional mentor both semesters of the program.


Mentorship Program

Purpose: To enable students to “LEARN BY DOING!”

Each Professional Selling Track student is paired with a professional salesperson in both the fall and spring semesters, a different mentor each term. This is one of the great and unique features of the track, and we hope you’ll find your mentor experience as beneficial and enjoyable as the students do.

The Mentorship Program has been carefully designed with your busy schedules in mind. It is our goal to give students a close-up view of the selling profession and a chance to draw on your expertise and years of experience without monopolizing too much of your time.
