  Information for our Corporate Partners   

Why become a corporate partner?

The UW Oshkosh sales program is considered a top sales program for equipping students with the fundamental knowledge about the buyer and sales process. This enables graduates to more effectively train with employers reducing their need for extra recruiting efforts and  resulting in an increased ability to retain top talent and future leaders of your company.

Each semester the UW Oshkosh sales program introduces an average of 30 students (juniors and seniors) to the sales process. Traditionally our class makeup is about half marketing majors with the other students being a mixture of majors from both within the College of Business and from the College of Letters and Sciences.

Research from the Sales Education Foundation shows that employee first-year retention rates increase for students who have progressed through a sales training program. Partners also have the opportunity to meet with annually with sales faculty to provide feedback and insight on course content,  job expectations and desired outcomes.
