It has been a great experience sponsoring the UNCG Sales Institute. I have had the opportunity to speak in front of several sales classes at UNCG and participate in a couple company spotlights at the university to share about opportunities with my company. I have been impressed with the staff, professors and the students at UNCG. I am about to hire a summer intern thanks to this program, and I am looking forward to working with the UNCG Sales Institute for years to come to help me staff my business.

NCSI has been instrumental in finding great young students who are eager to join the workforce. I’ve been impressed at the entrepreneurial caliber of students that UNCG is producing. Being a part of this organization is helping to shape my agency for the future.

Rick Babusiak, Insurance Agent Winston-Salem, NC


The North Carolina Sales Institute has been the highlight of my academic college career. The program has taught me invaluable knowledge and skills, which will not only help me in sales, but also in life in general. I acquired comprehension of the sales funnel, strategies and consequences of a mergers and acquisitions, and the role of key account management. Studying and understanding the material provided me with a competitive advantage to succeed during my sales internship during the summer of 2016. The program gave me the necessary confidence to thrive in any sales job upon graduation.

The NC Sales Institute is an engaging and applicable part of the business school, which I’ve greatly benefited from during my years of involvement. The professors bring and teach you about real-world experiences, while connecting you with high-level professionals. As a result, I’ve significantly improved my abilities to network, interview, and sell. If you put in hard work and show your dedication, your options are unlimited!
