Additional team members were Rachel Stegge and Joe Haggard.

Competing universities earned points in each event and the university accumulating the most overall points will be awarded the Collegiate World Cup of Sales.  Events included:

  • Strategic decision-making in a Sales Management Simulation event hosted last fall to qualify for SM CASE.
  • Relationship development skills in a Role-Play event where students sold Gartner.
  • Sales management problem-solving skills in a Sales Management Case event.

Ohio University earned 1168 points and first place overall in the ICSC event. 

The UW-Eau Claire Sales Team represents the university at collegiate sales competitions around the United States where they compete for prizes and meet prospective employers. Team members work hard and have fun. They meet weekly for individualized coaching that develops their sales and communication skills and enhances their self-confidence. The extra hours of practice pays off—100% of all team members who report having a job prior to graduation.

The team is supported by the Department of Management and Marketing, gifts from friends and corporate sponsors, and a grant from UW-Eau Claire Blugold Commitment funds.

Any UW-Eau Claire marketing major or minor may be part of the sales team. The team is selected in the spring semester for the following academic year.  Lenita Davis and Jessica Gardner are the faculty coaches for the Sales Team.
