USD Beacom school launches executive education

From staff reports

The USD Beacom School of Business has launched a new outreach service designed to focus on executive education and meet the ongoing training and development needs of regional businesses.

The school will launch its executive education effort May 12 at the University Center in Sioux Falls with the Beacom Sampler, a one-day event to offer tips and tools to help managers and leaders create value in their business. Top faculty will offer sessions on current topics such as measuring brand performance, negotiating for the best outcome, ethical conflicts and strategy.

“As the flagship business school in the state, we are committed to helping businesses recruit and retain high-quality business professionals.  Our executive education initiative aims to provide training opportunities to working professionals and senior executives to help their businesses achieve higher productivity and enhance their competitiveness.” Dean Venky Venkatachalam said.

Executive education services offer convenient and flexible ways for businesses to gain new tools and best practices to get and stay at the leading edge of their industry, he said.

The target audience includes managers and leaders as well as those aspiring to such positions.

Options will include courses available to the general public and customized options for specific organizations and industries. Application and admission to the university is not required and offerings are not limited to academic schedules.

Executive education will complement the services provided by the Beacom School’s other outreach services, which include the Prairie Family Business Association, the Small Business Development Center, and Business Research and Consulting Services.
