Two students from Edinburgh Napier University have beaten their American counterparts to take home a top sales award. Kenny Miller and Louise Bailey, took second place at the Russ Berrie International Sales Challenge in New Jersey.

The team took on 30 universities from across the US at the three-day event, where top sales students met with representatives from major corporations.

Bailey, who is studying marketing management, said: “We were blown away to come second. We didn’t expect to get anywhere close to that level because we were competing against American students who are studying sales as a degree”.

Miller,  a fourth year law student, said: “When I saw the university advert looking for students to participate in the competition I thought it looked like a fantastic opportunity, and that’s exactly what it turned out to be”.

The competition was designed to help students develop their sales skills, obtain real-world business knowledge and make valuable contacts with executives seeking to hire sales professionals.
