Area: Economics

Objectives of the MDP

Though ‘sales’ is one of the most exciting professions, most sales persons feel challenged, pressurised and stressed out. This is primarily due to

  • Most sales professionals do not have a solid foundation and understanding of the fundamentals of selling and
  • Sales professionals look at sales as a chore and drudgery, rather than an ‘art’ that is creative and a ‘science’ that is structured.

A sales professional can not only be successful, but can also enjoy his/ her sales career if and only if he/ she masters the art and science of sales.
