Sales skills to be tested in the sales competitions this spring

Sales competitions are convincing sales coaching situations. Students get to put their sales skills to the test in the spring in altogether six different sales competitions.

The cornerstone of sales is understanding the customer’s needs. In the competition’s buyer–seller role-play, the focus is on the evaluation of creating a good reciprocity, listening to the customer, and how well the solution presented responds to the needs of the customer. 

At Turku UAS, every competition involves student coaching and training, usually as a part of a course.  

Six different sales competitions in the spring

The first sales competition in Salo (SMK) will take place on 30 March, when 22 Bachelor of Business Administration students from Salo IoT Campus compete in Finnish in the online sales competition organized by Turku UAS.
