The Sales Innovation Program (SIP) was founded in 2019 as a flagship program within the College of Business through an Academic Cornerstone donation by Dan and Nancy Garrison. The program focuses on being a nationally renowned resource for sales education, sales research and valuable academic partnerships.

Our sales education coursework is tailored to develop students' business acumen, selling frameworks and presentation ability in order to equip them for influential roles in sales or related positions. For students interested in a sales certification, SIP offers a sales certificate where students partake in real-world challenges, foundational role-play exercises and leadership opportunities. If you are a Clemson student interested in pursuing SIP courses, please see the application information.

SIP's research faculty work collaboratively with salespeople, managers and executives on solving relevant issues in the modern marketplace. Our approach offers a customized and focused set of recommendations for sales leaders looking for unique insights that speak to their context.

SIP strives to deliver world-class sales student engagements that build valued relationships with industry partners. We work together to help our exceptional students and our partner organizations.
