Podcast Episode Description

We so often hear and see people proclaiming that “Sales should be taught in college”. Well, it was…and in high school, too, back in the early 1900’s. The most prominent universities in the country (Harvard, Wharton, etc.) had it. Then it disappeared – for decades.

Now it’s coming back – aggressively. Why did we need and have it 100+ years ago? Why did it disappear? Why is it back now? Could it disappear again? All covered in this week’s Sales History Podcast.
