Sales Innovation Program

Partner Benefits

The Sales Innovation Program strives to deliver world-class sales student engagements that help improve the educational opportunities we offer and build valued relationships between Clemson students and industry partners. In order to create the most value with each partner sales organization and their investment in our program, we offer varying levels of relationship engagement with our students and faculty.
