The Academy of Finance (AOF) program is an outreach program of the Beacom School of Business and the S.D. Council on Economic Education. We provide business-focused courses and work experiences to high school juniors and seniors at the Sioux Falls high schools.
Each fall semester AOF students also participate in AOF Day at the USD campus in Vermillion. Students visit the Beacom School of Business where they actively participate in a lecture about the importance of studying economic development, entrepreneurship and the benefits of small business creation. Students also tour the campus, meet and enjoy lunch with the dean, professors, staff and students.
