technology and a specialized curriculum designed to teach the art and science of sales give Huizenga Business School graduates
an edge in the most competitive job market in history. Come on, let’s take a quick look around. This is the sales institute’s executive conference
room. An elegant, multipurpose room with an expansive
balcony capable of hosting everything from formal
dinner receptions and cocktail parties to large-scale seminars for up to 170 guests Rich cherry paneled walls conceal eight big-screen
HD monitors, as well as the world’s most advanced videoconferencing
capabilities. All controlled via wireless smart-pad technology. The Sales Institute’s sixteen presentation and
interview rooms are each equipped with high definition flat screen monitors and multiple video cameras to capture and record student performances
for real-time feedback and analysis. This valuable information will be used by professors to
help students accentuate their strengths and eliminate any previously unseen habits. The goal? To build and instill confidence through practice, practice, and more practice. All sessions are captured electronically and stored
in each student’s secure digital file, allowing them to see their progress over time. Ultimately
they can use these files to create a professionally designed video portfolio of their skills, to
share with potential employers. Companies seeking an effective way to train
large numbers of employees at one time will love these cutting-edge facilities. Working
with their own instructors or a Huizenga Business School trainer, up to one hundred employees can learn a new
technique, practice it in the presentation rooms and return to the group for review and critique.

rooms to meet our graduates in-person or from anywhere in the world via advanced video
conferencing, using the same secure technology as the U.S.
government. Field recruiters can instantly share video
of every interview session with their HR offices and arrange follow-up videoconference
interviews right on the spot. The Sales Institute’s twin sixteen seat conference
rooms were built to give students vital experience presenting to larger audiences. They’re equipped with the latest AV systems
for instantaneous playback and are also available for corporate use. These offices house the Sales Institute’s full-time
faculty of sales professors. Each and every one a professional educator with years of experience
