Global Sales ProgramPanther Sales Tournament & Career Connection

The Panther Sales Tournament (PST) is a sales competition hosted by the Global Sales Program at Florida International University (FIU) each fall semester. Under the umbrella of the Department of Marketing & Logistics, business and non-business majors can to further develop their sales skills outside the classroom.

The sales competition consists of several rounds of simulated sales meetings with business professionals serving as the buyers. The meetings run between 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the round. Initial rounds focus on connecting with the ‘prospect’ and identifying needs. Later rounds emphasize the presentation of a value proposition, objection handling and asking for the sale. Students should prepare to adapt to unexpected situations. Students compete in English and have the option of competing in Spanish.
