The Media Sales Institute (MSI)© is a ten-day, intense training program developed by Personal Selling Principles (PSP) in 1999 and launched at Howard University in 2000 for graduating college or university seniors who were passionately interested in pursuing a career in media sales.
From 2006 – 2014, The National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters Telecommunications Education and Management Foundation (NABOB Foundation) hosted the annual Media Sales Institute at Florida A&M University.
In 2016, The NABOB Foundation and Personal Selling Principles, LLC (PSP) expanded the already successful Media Sales Institute (MSI) program to Atlanta, GA. This is the first MSI (in the country) to target military personnel (Post 9/11), career changers and recent college graduates; who have a genuine desire to be in media sales. This combined population of diverse and technically savvy talent created a (first of its kind) rich learning environment for the media industry.
“Media Sales” is defined as selling advertising airtime or space (on or in) cable, digital, internet, outdoor, publications, radio and television.
