Elon named a top university for professional sales education

The Martha and Spencer Love School of Business sales program is recognized by the Sales Education Foundation for preparing sales talent.

The Sales Education Foundation (SEF), a nonprofit organization supporting university-level sales education programs, highlighted Elon University in its 2020 list of “Top Universities for Professional Sales Education.”

Elon’s sales program, anchored by the Chandler Family Professional Sales Center, was selected based on its strong sales curriculum and experiential learning component. The center focuses on promoting professional selling, developing students for successful careers, and conducting research that advances the field of sales and sales management. It also supports the Elon Sales Team, which participates in collegiate competitions across the country.

The Chandler Family Center was established in 2008 by an endowment gift from Elon Trustee Thomas E. Chandler, owner of Chandler Concrete Company, and his family. It is a full member of the University Sales Center Alliance.

The Love School of Business, accredited by AACSB International, offers a major in marketing with a focus in professional sales as well as a minor in professional sales.
