Teaching and learning are our priorities at DePaul. That might seem obvious, but we’re the largest private university whose faculty members’ priority is teaching. We’re also the nation’s largest Catholic university — and we’re committed to an educational experience that weaves together mind, place, people, and heart.
DePaul has more than 300 undergraduate majors and graduate programs, so chances are good we have what you’re looking for. Many of our professors work in Chicago as consultants, researchers, and entrepreneurs, and incorporate their experiences in the classroom.
DePaul has one campus in Chicago’s business district and another in Lincoln Park. Chicago itself is an ideal classroom — and we take full advantage of it.

SALES LEADERSHIP CONCENTRATION
The demand for trained and knowledgeable salespeople has never been greater. Sales careers offer independence, ample financial reward, personal growth and opportunities for rapid advancement within the organization. The Sales Leadership Program produces business graduates who can sell by joining traditional classroom education with a real-world learning experience. Classes are led by faculty with extensive sales experience and by sales executives from leading corporations. Students experience rigorous classroom learning designed to deliver the knowledge and practical skills they will need to succeed during the first years of their careers including oral and written communication, selling technique and networking, use of technology in customer strategy and identification, and development of organizational leadership in a sales environment. Successful students will enjoy opportunities to visit companies, take paid internships, an interview with leading companies for entry-level positions.
