Students selected to become Dean’s Ambassadors must have an outstanding academic and leadership record and demonstrate excellent leadership and communication skills. This distinguished and diverse group of students will represent Beacom in various capacities and venues.

“This year’s team of ambassadors is made up of students with exemplary academic and leadership credentials,” said Venky Venkatachalam, Ph.D., Dean of the Beacom School of Business. “I look forward to working alongside them as we continue to advance the reputation and image of the Beacom School of Business.”

Logan Schiebout, an accounting student from Orange City, Iowa, said, “Being a Dean’s Ambassador allows me to continue to build the USD network and will allow alumni and business professionals to continue to see the quality of students that come through the Beacom School of Business at the University of South Dakota.”

Tam Le, an accounting student from Vietnam said, “Becoming a Dean’s Ambassador provides me with a golden opportunity to develop my leadership and illustrate our campus diversity to domestic students and the community outside of campus.
