Key objectives of DSEF’s campus events include:
- Helping students better understand direct selling, a global channel of distribution with annual revenues of more than $180 billion world-wide
- Bringing “real world” examples of marketing, entrepreneurship, research, sales management, ethics, consumer behavior and other aspects of direct selling as applied to the study of business
- Making students aware of a variety of corporate and entrepreneurial opportunities
Executives involved in this program often focus on an aspect of the class curriculum from a direct selling practitioner’s perspective, while sharing “real world’ experience with students.
