SUMMARY: JMU marketing students will compete in the National Collegiate Sales Competition (NCSC), the largest and oldest sales role-play competition in existence.

JMU’s Center for Professional Sales has selected the team that will represent the College of Business (CoB) at the National Collegiate Sales Competition (NCSC) at Kennesaw State University, in Kennesaw, Ga., beginning March 31. The team of Sonam Gurbuxani and Luke Brower, along with alternates Alex Fish and Austin Peck, will be among 150 other top students from 75 universities competing for the national championship. 

Inaugurated in 1999, the NCSC is the largest and oldest sales role-play competition in existence. Participants hail from the most elite university sales programs worldwide, where exceptional education, training and faculty come together to develop the next generation of sales leaders. The NCSC offers the opportunity for top students to sharpen their sales skills in a highly competitive environment and network with business professionals, peers and sales faculty from around the globe.

Students also will have the opportunity to network and interview with over 50 corporate sponsors such as VMWare, Intel, Gartner, ADP and Tek Systems. Many of these companies have recently hired JMU sales students. 

“This unique experiential engagement is a great learning experience as well as an opportunity to showcase the talented JMU sales students,” says marketing professor and department head Andy Wood.
