Certificate Program in Sales Management

A career in Sales can be highly rewarding and is usually the starting point for business leadership roles in most large and successful companies. Like other functions, Sales requires a set of specialized skills and not having these skills could mean the difference between success and failure. Yet, there are no specialized programs or courses available for young professionals wanting to learn the skills needed to be successful in Sales. Until now….

Designed by HeadStart Education and NMIMS in partnership with several industry leading companies, the program is a unique blend of classroom sessions, projects, in-field work and industry exposure to ensure that you build practical selling skills along with the knowledge and conceptual understanding needed to perform and grow in a Sales career.
