20 Years of Competition

The annual Bayou Sales Challenge, hosted by the College of Business Administration at Nicholls State University, allows students to show off their professional sales skills in an intense, head-to-head competition with peers.  This marks the competition's 20th year.


Due to COVID-19, this year's competition is limited to five schools.  But, like before, it begins with a panel discussion on professional sales careers led by leaders in the field.

Creating an #Impact in Sales

This regional sales competition is an opportunity for students to compete in sales role-plays and meet with sales professionals who are looking for fresh talent to fill sales positions.  It is also an opportunity to network with other sales program directors and students. 


Each spring, in Thibodaux, LA, the Bayou Sales Challenge has connected southern charm to unique learning experiences.  The 2024 competition will be unlike any other before it! 

A Message from the Director
