SUMMARY

Studying Sales and Merchandising is a valuable choice and typically a requisite first step for pupils seeking to pursue a career as a sales engineer, a sales development representative, or a business to business sales consultant. In fact, sales and merchandising is a very rare major ranking as the 127th most popular area of study. In the last year, there were 2,473 sales and merchandising degrees conferred. In-state tuition for sales and merchandising at private universities is, on average, 3.3 times more pricey than their public rivals.

With only 62 universities having programs for sales and merchandising you could have a more finite list of the institutions which will have a degree program for you. If you are looking to immerse yourself with other sales and merchandising undergrads, look at institutions in Texas which have more undergraduates admitted to sales and merchandising than any other state. Zooming out, the top region to major in sales and merchandising is in the Mid East region with CUNY Bernard M Baruch College, Manhattan College, and West Chester University of Pennsylvania best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick for the top conference to major in sales and merchandising is the Southeastern Conference with University of South Carolina-Columbia representing the conference. That being said, our choice for the best school for sales and merchandising is Bentley University. You might also want to check out our list of the best colleges.

The best school is not necessarily the best school for you. There are lots of facets to weigh when deciding on school. Features such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food could refashion one's thoughts of which college to attend. At Authority, we've evaluated the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are interested in which sales and merchandising university has the best campus, the answer is Purdue University-Main Campus. If you are primarily interested in which college boasts the top campus, we have an entire page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, student reviews, government databases, and more in order to compare every U.S. major in an unbiased and informative way. You can find our well researched list for the schools with the best student life here and from that list, our selection of the university with the best student life for sales and merchandising is University of Wisconsin-Madison. Are you curious why? Continue scrolling to find out more about Authority's top selections. Some of our picks will probably shock you.

If expense is a significant deciding factor in your choice of where you attend school, you might consider avoiding Bentley University. Bentley University is our most expensive school for sales and merchandising, at least for out of state students. That being said, we have a list of the most expensive colleges that might put the price tag of Bentley University into perspective. Additionally, you may care to know that sales and merchandising is the 314th most expensive major in America, with an average bill of $22,400. On a broader scale, the most expensive state for sales and merchandising on our list is Massachusetts with expenses at the main school, Bentley University, of $50,060. To zoom out even further, the most costly region of the U.S. for sales and merchandising is the New England region which is best demonstrated with University of Hartford with a cost of $39,220, Quinnipiac University with a cost of $46,790, and Bentley University with a cost of $50,060.

Our cheapest region for sales and merchandising is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by Weber State University with a cost of $14,973 and Western Governors University with a cost of $6,380. In better news, the most affordable school for sales and merchandising is CUNY Bernard M Baruch College. Authority's entire list of the most affordable colleges can be explored here.

In-state learners can anticipate paying about $10,000 for a degree in sales and merchandising. The price swells substantially to an average of $23,700 for the out-of-state public-school undergraduate. Our selection for the school representing the best value for sales and merchandising: Bentley University. On this page you will see our comprehensive list for the colleges we believe to be the best value overall. Bear in mind, this discussion is predicated on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when it comes to in-state tuition, but we do not know in which states any one student has residency.

Earnings for sales and merchandising majors differ widely, but two years after graduation graduates will typically make around $82,100. While there is much variation in earnings potential; top positions can experience pay up to $147,600. Even straight out of school, the lowest earning positions within the sales and merchandising field make $45,900, which could be worse. The highest earning grads from sales and merchandising studied at Bentley University and if you want to find the universities with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The general diversity of sales and merchandising ranks below average, falling in the 29th percentile of majors nationally. The university with the most composite diversity for sales and merchandising is Barry University and here you can find our comprehensive list for the universities which have the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of the Sales and Merchandising major sits only in the 73rd percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is even lower in the 25th percentile. White collegians compose the largest share at 72% of students majoring in sales and merchandising. Additionally, 58% of scholars pursuing a sales and merchandising major are men.

The median rating of sales and merchandising professors is 4.2 stars, a ranking which is 5% higher than the median score across every major; this is a good ranking. If you want to find the most popular sales and merchandising professor nationally, consider looking up Alex Lawrence at Weber State University. It might surprise you, but the best ranked instructors for sales and merchandising by student are found at Oakland University. If we including data other than basic rankings we find that the college with the best instructors for sales and merchandising is Bentley University. You will find an explanation of our ever evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, as well as some of the best examples of professors nationwide.

Finally, the most difficult school to get into for sales and merchandising is CUNY Bernard M Baruch College. While we think of this list more as a novelty, we have a comprehensive page of the hardest colleges to get into. But, we hope you believe that considering the education process through a lens only shaped by superlatives can cause issues. We hope you read our other pages on different topics and read some of our background articles on important details to look out for as your school search develops.
