There are 4,000+ colleges and universities in the U.S. Less than 150 of them have a sales course let alone a sales program. Thus 97% of the schools have no foundational education in the career of sales.
And yet 50% of all college graduates, regardless of what their major is, work in some sales position out of school. Think about that massive imbalance.
Their job may not have “sales” explicitly in the title but they clearly are in sales having to work with prospects and/or customers to help them achieve their business outcomes.
Ecosystems is leading the way to shift this imbalance by proactively forming strategic partnerships with Academia to empower young people to learn this noble craft. Helping is selling and selling is not helping.

We provide future sales professionals with real-world examples and hands-on experience with our platform.
