The Edward H. Schmidt School of Professional Sales

Sales Ambassador Program

 

Overview

The ESSPS has a team of competitive and results-oriented student leaders that assist the ESSPS Director and ESSPS Sales Engagement and Development Leader Graduate Assistant to increase enrollment and student engagement in the ESSPS.
