Sales Academy Launches at UH

Bauer Sales Academy
The C.T. Bauer College of Business has launched the Sales Academy, an eight-week certificate course designed to train early and mid-career professionals to connect tech companies with customers.

Houston has added startup incubation spaces, boosted the availability of investment funding for new companies and promoted itself as an up-and-coming tech hub. But a key element has been missing – a sales force specially trained to promote tech companies and their products.

The Sales Academy launched last week at the University of Houston, aimed at preparing early and mid-career professionals to work in the technology industry. The eight-week certificate program is part of the Stephen Stagner Sales Excellence Institute in the C.T. Bauer College of Business.

The class operates on a deferred-payment model, with the $5,000 fee due only if students have received a job offer for at least $50,000 after the program’s conclusion. Salespeople in the industry can earn six figures.
