Nicholls Sales Lab

About Our Lab
A generous donation in 2004 from Northwestern Mutual allowed Nicholls State University to develop its sales lab and, since, it has undergone two separate facelifts.  Located in Powell Hall (Rm. 209), the sales and interactive training lab is fit with five sales labs, a control room, and teaching studio.
Each lab contains a circular table, three office chairs, a dropped microphone, and wall-mounted video camera.  Computer-based software allows each lab to run simultaneously and record the session.  Students are able to, with a username and password, immediately access their lab sessions from a mobile device or computer via state-of-the-art technology that audio and video records sessions.
In normal times, the interactive training lab allows the instructor to coach students in a more realistic environment.  Students can then take the information and practice it, and prepare via sales training sessions that imitate real-world selling.  
In the future, if you are interested in touring our facility, sponsoring one of our sales labs, or hosting a training session utilizing our technology, please contact Kaitlin Beier Gravois at  We invite you for a visit!
