This Sales Diploma (post-degree) program offers a broad exposure to sales and marketing viewed from technical, creative and management perspectives.
Enrolling in the program does serve a variety of purposes, depending on your goals:
- It's a conversion course, providing concentrated training in sales if your background is another field but you wish to start a business or move into a sales position.
- If you have a degree but your work experience is in sales, finishing this program will give you a sales credential if you intend to study further or pursue work experience in Canada.
- If you have been working in sales for some time but lack formal or recent training, this diploma program delivers upgraded sales education, skills and current practices.
The PDD in Sales is customized for each student and reflects their needs, experience, future plans and learning style. In addition to course work, you will gain practical experience through an optional work experience or internship placement (upon program completion).
You will be awarded the Post-Degree Diploma in Sales once you have completed the program.
