Regents Approve Two New USD Business Minors
The USD Beacom School of Business minors in business analytics and operations management will be available to students starting next fall. The minor in business analytics will focus on the use of computational technology and data to improve business decision making and operational effectiveness. The operations management minor will emphasize lean management, project management and supply chain management as they are applied to business and industry.
U.S. Labor Department projections through 2022 identify a 7 percent job growth for operations managers, while strong national job growth of 16 percent to 32 percent is estimated for business analysts.
"We are excited with this approval and look forward to offering these minors, which will significantly enhance our graduates' ability to succeed in the marketplace when they graduate," said Venky Venkatachalam, dean of the Beacom School of Business. "As the flagship business school in the state, we are dedicated to offering academic programs that meet the changing needs of business and industry in South Dakota and the region."
The school also has added business administration majors in operational analytics as well as innovations and entrepreneurship.
