What do Warren Buffett of Berkshire Hathaway, Anne Mulcahy of Xerox and Cisco’s Chuck Robbins have in common? They are all Fortune 500 CEOs who started out in sales. Sales is the most sought-after capability in the global economy, and that need will never expire. Why? Because nothing happens in business until something gets sold.

The Kellogg Sales School is a one-of-a-kind program designed and delivered by the powerhouse faculty—Professor Craig Wortmann, who has helped the world's largest and most successful organizations in developing and fine-tuning their sales talent. Professor Wortmann is supported by a blockbuster lineup of distinguished industry experts, who impart their extensive knowledge and practical experience throughout the program.

Over the course of seven months, you will learn the sales process from scratch, including techniques to improve both conversions and customer relationships. Additionally, you will get a chance to specialize in one of three high-growth sales fields—entrepreneurial selling, selling healthcare, or selling technology.
