VERMILLION, S.D. – The University of South Dakota now offers non-residents the opportunity to earn select graduate degrees within the Beacom School of Business at resident tuition rates.
The Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) has approved several graduate business degrees as part of the Western Regional Graduate Program (WRGP). This approval and tuition reciprocity arrangement allows graduate degree seekers who are residents of the WICHE member states to enroll and pay resident tuition and potentially save thousands of dollars.
The University of South Dakota Beacom School of Business programs that were approved include the Masters of Business Administration with Marketing, Business Analytics, or Operations and Supply Chain specialization, as well as the Masters of Professional Accountancy. Several USD School of Education programs were also approved.
"WICHE and its 16 member states and territories work collaboratively to expand educational access and excellence for all citizens of the West. By promoting innovation, cooperation, resource sharing, and sound public policy, WICHE strengthens higher education’s contributions to the region's social, economic, and civic life."
