National Sales Competition
Inaugurated in 1999, the National Collegiate Sales Competition (NCSC) is the largest and oldest sales role-play competition in existence. Instituted for the purpose of enhancing the practice and professionalism of the sales profession, the NCSC’s mission remains the same.
The NCSC hosts the top collegiate sales talent and sales faculty from the most elite University Sales Programs in North America. Up-coming sales graduates are provided a venue for sharpening their sales skills in a highly competitive environment and networking with their peers and sales faculty from across the United States.
Over the NCSC’s 12 year history, more than a thousand students and faculty have participated from across the U.S., Canada and Mexico. In March 2010, NCSC XII hosted more than 60 of the top graduate and undergraduate sales programs in the world and these same programs and others are expected to participate again in NCSC XIII in March 2011.

Students create a two-minute sales pitch about themselves. Then, as pictured above, each student meets individually with an executive and makes a two-minute pitch highlighting the reasons he or she should be hired. A one-minute question and answer session follows; then, the student moves on to the next executive.
