The Canadian Professional Sales Association (CPSA) is excited to announce a new partnership with Cape Breton University (CBU). This partnership recognizes that the business knowledge and core skills taught by CBU’s Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) program are aligned with the CPSA’s Sales Professional Competency Framework.
The BBA program at CBU not only focuses on providing students with a solid foundation of business skills, but also gives students the ability to diversify their education with multiple areas of study. With courses in subjects such marketing, supply chain management and finance, students will graduate with the ability to analyze a business situation and identify alternative responses to any difficulties, allowing them to achieve success in any industry as an employee or owner. Students in the BBA program are now also provided with the pre-requisite education needed to obtain the CPSA Institute Sales Certificate and to pursue their Certified Sales Associate (CSA) designation, giving them a competitive edge when beginning a career in sales.
CPSA Institute Accredited Partners are industry leaders and top sales training companies that deliver results-driven information and insights that will position students to succeed, now and in the future.
