What our Students are Saying…

Because I completed my undergraduate courses at USD, I knew the quality of the professors in the MPA program and at the Beacom School of Business. They are invested in the success of each student and are truly engaged with their students in and out of the classroom. The curriculum prepared me not only to sit for the CPA exam, but also with the critical thinking skills necessary to succeed in my career.
