White Lodging Professional Selling Lab

Launched in fall 2018, PNW’s high-tech sales lab uses role-play exercises to help students in the sales minor build hands-on skills

The sales lab includes a central classroom and six practice rooms. Each role-play suite is equipped with recording technology for use in sales role-plays, mock interviewing and classroom instruction.

Corporate Sponsors

Our sponsors make this high-tech learning classroom a reality. Sponsor funding sustains the physical sales lab, student sales competition awards and an academic curriculum that develops successful 21st century sales professionals.

While all companies are welcome to recruit students, corporate partners are privileged to benefits relating to classroom experiences and student events.
