To promote thought leadership in the UCF College of Business (#UCFBusiness), Dean Paul Jarley hosts a monthly luncheon, gathering faculty from various departments to discuss events in the college.

February’s guest speaker was Bill Steiger, coordinator of the Professional Selling Program. The Professional Selling Program is a selective degree track within the Department of Marketing, accepting no more than 35 students each year.

Steiger brought with him the team of #UCFBusiness students that recently won the International Collegiate Sales Competition (ICSC). This team was the first in UCF history to win the ICSC, which took place in Orlando at the Rosen Centre Hotel.

Throughout the luncheon, Steiger spoke about the prestige that the Professional Selling Program brings to the school, and what the students’ futures look like after graduation. The program boasts a 95% after-graduation job placement rate, with the remaining students continuing on to graduate school.

Past speakers have included Robert Porter, Ph.D. (graduate and executive programs downtown), and Kelly Dowling and Erin Oglethorpe (alumni and donor engagement).
