Why Choose Saint Rose for Sales Management?

There is an unparalleled need for highly-trained sales managers and sales representatives in the business world, which is why Saint Rose recently launched a program in sales — the first of its kind in New York State. By the end of the four-year program, you’ll receive your Bachelor of Science in marketing with a concentration in sales management and gain an edge in a highly competitive industry.

Sales and marketing go hand-in-hand. At Saint Rose, you’ll take courses in personal selling, negotiation and conflict resolution, sales management and leadership, and retail management. And, you’ll study coursework in international marketing and management, services marketing, digital marketing, advertising and promotion, and business-to-business marketing. Inside and outside of the classroom, you’ll gain valuable hands-on experience at required internships, computer simulations, and work on marketing campaigns for real clients as part of your Saint Rose experience. Enjoy one-on-one guidance and support from expert faculty members who have worked for Bose Corporation, The LEGO Group, the International Olympic Committee, and more.

According to the U.S. Bureau for Labor Statistics, the median annual wage for sales managers, who set sales goals, analyze data, and develop training programs for sales representatives, was $121,060 in May 2017.
