Professional Sales Institute
The Professional Sales Institute (PSI) is a partnership between LSU and industry, dedicated to the discovery and dissemination of sales knowledge, and to the development of professional sales leaders. From the curriculum perspective, we offer a Professional Sales Concentration within the Marketing B.S. degree, which consists of three classes, professional sales, sales management, and a sales practicum. One component of the PSI assists companies looking for interns and full-time professional sales employees. In the future, we plan to provide opportunities for sponsors to participate in PSI events, such as sales competitions, job fairs, symposia, and other activities. Finally, we believe the PSI will provide the opportunity and motivation for collaborative scholarly research.
