Stetson Announces Partnership with Leading Research and Advisory Company
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. Through this partnership, Gartner will help prepare students for the national sales competition, engage in valuable role play scenarios with students in the sales labs, and provide valuable content for classroom lectures.
“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.
“Gartner is excited to be a sponsor of the Centurion Sales competition team. It’s been impressive to see the Stetson Sales Program grow, and Gartner takes pride in being able to contribute to the professional development of the next generation of top sales talent,” said Tamara Welch, sr. director of campus recruiting, 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.
