Compete in the third annual Cal State LA Sales Bowl to show employers that you have what it takes to drive revenue for a business!

Salesmanship is an important skill valued by a wide range of businesses since it is a critical vehicle for building revenue. We have launched this event as a part of our ongoing commitment to prepare students to compete in the real world by giving them the opportunity to demonstrate their achievement and skills in in-demand areas. 

About the Competition

The Sales Bowl is comprised of two rounds. Students will be tasked to move through each round in order to: 

  • Convey value to others
  • Use questioning and information gathering in order to determine customer need and confirm commitment
  • Engage in the delivery of a persuasive sales presentation that provides a prospect with compelling reasons to buy
  • Close a sale

Invest in yourself. Show your competitive spirit while building your resume. Join us at the Sales Bowl!
