I graduated from a small high school, so when I decided to pursue a business degree at USD, I was nervous that I would not be able to develop personal relationships with my professors at a large university. I was pleasantly surprised when I realized the professors truly make an effort to get to know their students and help them achieve their goals.

At the Beacom School of Business, faculty challenge students to think outside the box and apply course concepts in a variety of ways. By allowing students to compete in simulations, collaborate with fellow students for group projects, complete real-life case studies and develop strong communication skills through presentations.

The experiences a student can gain outside of the classroom are just as valuable as the lessons learned inside the classroom. Student organizations allow students to gain hands-on experience and expose them to real-life career activities. The Business School also hosts multiple networking events throughout the year, so students have the opportunity to connect with future employers.
