USCA's Mission

Our mission is to advance the selling profession through setting and monitoring sales program standards, sharing best practices, enhancing sales curricula, and preparing students for careers in sales.

USCA's Vision

Our vision is to be recognized as the international leader and standard bearer for increasing the prestige and credibility of the sales profession.

In April 2002, representatives from nine universities met during the National Conference on Sales Management to develop an organization that would increase the professionalism of the sales field, improve the status of sales as an academic discipline, and assist other universities in this mission.

The following September of 2002 these nine representatives held the first semi-annual USCA board meeting at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. As our membership ranks have grown (see Member Schools page) and interest in our mission advanced, the USCA has been able to assist many universities and interested sales faculty around the U.S. and internationally.

Research in sales and sales management has thrived. Preparing individuals for careers in the sales profession as professionals has resulted from USCA schools’ ability to attract talented young people and provide them with the learning and development trajectory that is one of the hallmarks of USCA schools.

Beginnings

Since our beginnings in 2007, the non-profit Sales Education Foundation has promoted the benefits of university sales education both in academia and the corporate world – ultimately changing the world’s view of the term “sales.” SEF has planted the seed of providing sales education to multiple colleges and universities and has become a “primary search engine for all things Sales education.”

Support

SEF provides support for the establishment and growth of sales education at the university level by funding sales research grants, providing our Career Development Program, funding multiple sales-specific workshops, conferences and special interest groups and creating a platform for exchanging ideas and best practices.

Publication

Through the publication of our “Top Universities for Professional Sales Education” listing, featured in our Annual magazine we have given sales programs a place to promote their offerings worldwide. The Annual is the only magazine dedicated solely to promoting university sales education.
