Stetson University School of Business Administration has announced a partnership with Gartner, a leading research and advisory company based in Stamford, Connecticut, for sponsorship of the Centurion Sales competition team.

“This partnership provides a great opportunity for students in the Sales Program to not only receive insightful, real-world coaching from professionals at a leading company, but additionally to gain exclusive access to mentors and be privy to potential employment opportunities,” said John Riggs, D.B.A., executive director of the Centurion Sales Program.

The partnership affords Stetson students access to a variety of internship and employment opportunities at Gartner. Recently two Stetson students in the Sales Program secured positions with Gartner.

The Centurion Sales Program is designed to bridge the gap between the classroom and real-world performance. The program offers interactive courses in cutting-edge video sales labs, professional development opportunities and a far-reaching community of faculty, alumni and partners committed to sales excellence.
