(FORTUNE Small Business) -- Dear FSB: I am a newly appointed VP of Sales at a sporting goods manufacturer. While I've held various management roles in sales for more than 10 years, I am new to this company. Can you recommend any advanced executive training seminars that may help me in my new endeavor?

-Chris Brondell, Otter Outdoors in Maple Lake, Minn.

Dear Chris: Our first instinct was to refer you to the executive MBA programs on our Best Colleges for Entrepreneurs list, but it seems that the closest place on our list is an eight-hour drive away from you.

In the very likely chance that you're not wiling to make that daily commute, we suggest that you take a look at the schools we identified as having the best e-learning programs. Since you are in sales, try Boston University's "marketing and sales" course - while you're at it, brush up on your entrepreneurial spunk and sign up for "interplay of personal character, organization and structure." To top of page
