Each year, the Ball State University Sales Team competes in regional and national competitions. These events offer students the opportunity to compete with peers across the country in professional selling simulations. Top businesses wanting to recruit the best and brightest sales talent sponsor and judge these competitions.

Ball State has an outstanding track record at these events, with a history of winning awards and earning recognition from Fortune 500 companies. In addition to trophies, recognition, and interviewing with top-notch companies, our students have won thousands of dollars in prize money.

Ball State’s Regional Sales Competition

The premiere event for our campus is the Ball State Regional Sales Competition held each September/October at Ball State’s Student Center. The one-day, fast-paced mock sales role play competition invites students from more than a dozen schools to demonstrate their talents and skills to regional and national industry leaders. Although competition is dedicated to one day, the night before includes a themed welcome dinner and networking opportunities. The 2019 BSU Regional Sales Competition will be held on September 23-24.
