SmartFox Spotlight - Professor Christiane Palpant, aka 'Prof CP'
Our SmartFox Professor Spotlight this month is - Professor CP, Clinical Instructor of Marketing for the Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University. Her spotlight class picture above is priceless and represents the success of our Salesforce university program. Here's our interview with Professor CP:
What goals do you have for Georgia State University as it relates to teaching Salesforce CRM and/or Artificial Intelligence within your curriculums?
"According to U.S. News and World Report, Georgia State University is the number 1 public university for undergraduate teaching and the number 2 most innovative university in the nation. GSU is also the most diverse university in the United States. As a result, it is critical for the GSU Robinson College of Business students to have essential career-ready skills after graduation. In the real-world business environment, an understanding of CRM and AI is crucial for young professionals to prove their skill sets early on. Currently, SmartFox/Salesforce is taught in the senior-level, Sales Management class. Due to its wide acceptance by students, GSU will expand the learning to other classes in the spring semester."
How do you use the SmartFox Technologies University Program to help you accomplish these goals?
"Our goal at GSU is to offer the sales and marketing students the tools to complete the Master Level SmartFox certification and 6,000 Salesforce TrailHead points. The SmartFox simulated organization has enabled students to work through case studies, answer assessment questions, and prove their understanding of important concepts. Many students have testified that this has been one of the most meaningful experiences of their college career. They now have the confidence to apply for and land professional roles in sales and marketing."
Congratulations Christiane for your success. Using our university program to give your students confidence to apply for and land professional roles in sales and marketing is exactly why we created our university program.
