The International Collegiate Sales Competition is a competition that tests the top sales students from universities across the world. The competition consists of multiple events including a role-play competition, speed selling event, and sales management simulation event. Competitors are ranked based on their performances.

"Representing Catholic University in the sales role play competition at ICSC was an amazing experience. It was a unique opportunity that allowed me to run mock meetings with active  sales professionals and test myself among the best sales talent at the university level. This experience was incredibly valuable for us and will undoubtedly direct us towards success in the future. I’m very appreciative to the Busch School for enabling us to travel to Florida and forge connections with so many interesting companies and people!" - Tucker Alch
