Four Texas State students — Sydney Alvarado, Alexandra Berzsenyi, James Brownhill and Mitchell Sanderson — represented The Center for Professional Sales Center from the Mc-Coy College of Business Administration at Texas State University at the 6th Annual International Collegiate Sales Competition held Nov. 1-5 in Orlando, Florida. Hosted by Florida State University, a member of the University Sales Center Alliance, the mission of the competition was to develop critical skills needed by today’s sales graduates and foster best practices among sales organizations worldwide.

The sponsor for the competition was Citrix Systems, a major cloud computing company. Citrix enables business mobility through the secure delivery of apps and data to any device on any network. The company is based in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida with annual revenues of over $3,275,594 revenues (2015).

Garnering the 3rd place finish out of 70 universities for the Texas State University Sales Role Play team were Sydney Alvarado and Alexandra Berzsenyi – both semifinalists in the role play competition. Alvarado also won 1st place in the Speed Selling competition and earned a $1,000 award. James Brownhill and Mitchell Sanderson competed in the Sales Management Case Competition.

“Our students have a tremendous work ethic, great attitude and are very competitive,” the team’s coach Wayne Noll said. “The opportunity to be a part of a selling team from the McCoy School of Business Administration is truly an honor,” Alvarado said. “Being able to continue the tradition of performing at the higest level is extremely inspirational.”

“The opportunities for my future employment have been greatly enhanced by this unforgettable experience,” Berzsenyi said. “I am so grateful.”
