DURHAM, N.H. (AP) - The University of New Hampshire is partnering with the business community for a new program aimed at undergraduates interested in careers in sales leadership.

The new Sales Center of Excellence is part of the UNH Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics and is paid for with grants and investments from the business community.

Officials say it will give students an early start in gaining skills in marketing, sales, business etiquette and leadership and better prepare them to land jobs. Industry experts will serve as mentors and coaches for students.
