University of Tampa Accepted Into University Sales Center Alliance

The University of Tampa has been accepted as an associate member of the University Sales Center Alliance (USCA). The USCA is a consortium of sales educators who are dedicated to advancing the sales profession through teaching, research and outreach.

The USCA consists of 46 universities from the U.S. and Europe dedicated to preparing students for success in professional sales roles. USCA sales centers offer students an unmatched combination of specialized sales courses, mentors, internships and other forms of actual sales experience to help students learn, develop and sharpen their sales skills. Students successfully completing these programs have shorter ramp-up times and out-produce those without this sort of specialized preparation.

Stacey Schetzsle, director of the UT Institute of Sales Excellence and associate professor of marketing, said that as a member of the USCA, UT’s Institute for Sales Excellence will be recognized alongside the best sales programs in the world.

“Membership provides unique opportunities for our students, including an exclusive sales certification program only available to USCA schools,” Schetzsle said. “This is another major step for the Sykes College of Business in bringing the best academic programs in sales to all UT students.”

Jimmy Peltier, USCA president, noted that “member schools earning certification signal to others that their sales programs have met rigorous standards for success.”
