This intensive sales management training course addresses experienced managers and high-potential professionals across all sectors who work in sales and customer management. It is an executive education course for sales professionals who have a passion for their work and would like to deepen their expertise in sales further. There are no requirements regarding previous qualifications.

This intensive course comprises six three-day modules, each focusing on a different topic. Each module runs from Tuesday to Thursday, with an evening program on Wednesday evening.

In the third module, you can select a focus for your studies by choosing between two electives: an intensive seminar in managing sales processes or an intensive seminar in B2B marketing. Visit the intensive seminars’ web pages for further information. If you are having difficulty deciding between the two electives, we would be happy to advise you and help you find the most suitable option for you.

You can obtain a module plan from the current edition of the course from the course leader.

We use various methods to ensure you can implement learning content in your company, including examining your performance in three areas. First, you must attend at least 90% of the classes for each module. Second, at the end of each module, you must submit a written paper to the seminar leader to demonstrate learning transfer (approx. ten pages; graded). Third, you will complete a group project across the modules. The task is to produce a written analysis of a topic and give a final presentation (both elements are graded).

Option to extend studies to diploma level (DAS-HSG) You can choose to extend the CAS Sales Management course with the CAS Marketing Management course and a diploma thesis to earn the DAS Sales Executive (HSG) worth 30 ECTS credits.

Admission to the course is at the discretion of the program director. They will take into account your professional background, qualifications and completed training. An academic university-level degree or qualification is not a precondition of admission.

As our intensive courses are often fully booked well in advance, we recommend contacting the seminar leader right away. Making a reservation is the best way to secure a place with no obligation to proceed and also gives you time to make any internal organizational arrangements.

The total price for the course is CHF 18750 for 18 days of teaching (6 x 3-day modules). It includes all documentation, books, lunch and refreshments. It does not include the costs of travel, accommodation, evening meals and communal events.

We are currently experiencing many structural changes in sales, which is why I have chosen a course of study that deals with practical methods and deals with the current market challenges (dealing with digitalization and the multi-channel world). Break out of the daily work routine for once and benefit from other industry experiences!
