Selling with the Bulls is a community engagement event hosted by the Center for Marketing and Sales Innovation at the Muma College of Business, University of South Florida. Selling with the Bulls combines employer networking and engaged scholarship with multiple go-to-market (sales and marketing) student competitions. The student go-to-market competition tracks include: Field Sales Conversation, Quick Pitch, and Marketing Case. A fourth competition track in Inside Selling is anticipated for the Spring 2019 competition. Selling with the Bulls takes place each semester.
