Designed as a two-round role play, students will be directed to sell a specific product. Each round will include a brief scenario, a particular goal, a potential close, a specific time limit and a scoring rubric. Buyers and judges will be a mix of sales professionals and Susquehanna faculty. When not competing, student competitors will have the opportunity to experience workshops, campus tours, and other events.

Cash Prizes

The top 10 students from Round 1 will move on to Round 2 and will receive cash prizes. Students will receive the scoring rubrics with the judges’ feedback after the competition concludes.

  • First: $750
  • Second: $600
  • Third: $500
  • Fourth: $400
