The Edward H. Schmidt School of Professional Sales (ESSPS) at the University of Toledo hosts a number of outreach events throughout the academic year that are designed to engage with our business community for talent recruitment, strategic alignment, and sales force development.
Corporate Partner Panel Series - Corporate Partner Exclusive
The Corporate Partner Panel Series is a series of presentations on professional sales and career related topics that are done solely by ESSPS Corporate Partners. Students in attendance will be professional sales majors, minors, pre-professional sales majors, professional sales MBA concentrations, anyone taking a professional class, and students in Intro to Business, Career Development I and II, Communications, and Engineering who have an interest in professional selling and business development. Students registered in professional sales classes are required to attend one presentation. Students will receive extra credit they can apply to professional sales class(es) of their choice if they attend more than one session in a given semester.
Sessions will be web casted for secure on-demand viewing afterwards in the ESSPS catalog (click here to login to the Events Catalog). Pizza and pop will be provided.

Accommodate your busy schedule and take charge of your professional development by attending and participating in the College of Business & Innovation’s interactive event web casts. The College of Business & Innovation (COBI) at the University of Toledo is proud and excited to announce the launch of its online event catalogs. To better serve and reach our global business community, the COBI will be streaming public and private (ie: password protected) events such as forums, summits, conferences, etc live over the internet. Events will also be available on-demand shortly after the event is over so members of the business community can continue to watch and share them with their colleagues.
Do you think that secure, interactive web casts that save time, money, and improve internal coordination would be useful for your own organization’s training, events, role play assessments, meetings, etc? Facility rentals in the Savage & Associates Complex for Business Learning and Engagement including portable equipment and video conferencing are available. Call 419-530-2978 for more information.
