Benefit Auction

Join the sales students as they raise funds for student merit awards and our charity partner, Coming Together for a Cure. The 7th Annual Benefit Auction will be held on Friday, May 10, 2019 at the K-State Alumni Center. The auction is a semi-formal affair featuring fine-dining, musical entertainment, games, and the auction services of The Canny Team of Johnson, Kansas.

The Benefit Auction allows our sales students to learn about territory management, prospecting, phone sales, and the sales process in a real-world setting. To develop our future sales stars, the NSSI utilizes an innovative curriculum, state-of-the-art facilities, and professional development activities, combined with real-world experiences. Realistic experiences such as the the NSSI Benefit Auction will allow our students to hit the ground running once hired. In fact, research has shown that students graduating from university sales programs tend to stay in their first sales job longer and produce more revenue faster than their peers who have not graduated from such programs. The NSSI seeks to provide our students with an outstanding sales education and businesses with outstanding sales recruits.
