Using Your Degree

People who have what it takes to succeed in healthcare sales — technical acumen, self-motivation, and negotiation and communications skills — are in high demand. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the need for experienced sales managers is expected to grow faster than the average for other jobs in the next decade. The St. Kate's healthcare sales program is a recognized leader within the robust medical device and products industries in Minnesota and beyond.
