University of Central Oklahoma College of Business partner, Bob Mills, visited professional sales students to share his journey to success through accomplishments, failures and everything in between.
“Take what Bob Mills said to heart understanding his opportunity is also your opportunity if you choose it.” Bob Kaiser, chairman to the professional sales program at UCO, said to students about the visit.
“Students attending the Bob Mills talk should take away a heightened appreciation of the individual opportunities they have for career success in their own business or as an employee for someone else.”
In June 2021, Bob Mills Furniture and UCO College of Business partnered to establish the Bob Mills Professional Sales Center where students can use the center to practice for interviews, competitions and prepare for a career in professional selling.
“UCO and its college of business offer interactive opportunities with business leaders that will rival major universities in our geographic region. Success inspires success and motivates others to higher goals and ambitions.”
Mills’ continued support to the college and its professional sales students helps give students majoring in professional sales the resources they need to prepare for a professional business career. The professional sales program has an almost 100% employee placement before students graduate with many students in the program having excelled in national sales competitions.
“Bob Mills has been an outstanding supporter of the college’s Professional Sales Program. His willingness to visit the college and share his expertise allows our learners to appreciate the talent, dedication, and determination it takes to become a successful business leader,” said Jeremy Oller, J.D., Ph.D., dean of Central’s College of Business.
“Bob Mills is an iconic name in the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area, and his support for our program enhances our learners’ educational experience and will help motivate them in their pursuit to become successful professionals.”
