The National Strategic Selling Institute (NSSI) is proud to be a full-member of the prestigious University Sales Center Alliance (USCA), a consortium of sales centers established in 2002 and devoted to quality and innovation in sales education and the advancement of the sales profession.

In order to become a full member of USCA, a university must (1) be a distinct entity within the college or university and recognized as such; and (2) pass the strict criteria established by the USCA with respect to faculty, structure, curriculum, affiliation, and quality. Kansas State University is one of nineteen full members in the USCA.



The National Strategic Selling Institute (NSSI) has been continuously recognized by The Sales Education Foundation (SEF) as a top University in sales education! 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.

To be considered for this honor, the program must offer a minimum of three sales-specific courses, receive accreditation from an external source, and have university recognition of the program.
