About Turku Sales Competition (TSC)
The Turku Sales competition is a role-playing game in a B2B sales situation. The competition is held twice a year, in autumn and in spring and is a part of the Sales Module at Turku UAS.
The participants of the competition consist of sales engineer students and exchange students of Turku UAS as well as visitors from other universities. The competition is held in English.
The competition in brief
- A multi-stage sales case is being prepared for the competition together with the main partner
- The competing student acts as a sales representative in front of a living buyer
- The sales performance is judged by predetermined judges using the evaluation criteria
- Judges and buyers include representatives of companies, staff of the educational institutions and students
- The sales situation lasts up to 20 minutes / seller
- The first 2 stages are a sales situation and the final is the sales negotiation
Judges and Buyers
- Both Judges and Buyers will be trained before competition
- Main attribute is to use same performance and scale throughout the session for all competitors
- Judges will have a preset form for assessment and buyers will have their own form
- Online “room” serves as one unit and “rooms” will not be compared to each other
- Every competitor will be judged for their own sheet
- Scores will be calculated based on the individual scores
- Do not interact with the sales situation. After the situation is over, discussions are more than desired, also with the buyer.
- After performance, no feedback given to competitors. They simply leave.
