College students tout immersive internships at Sioux Falls organizations

Eleven Sioux Falls businesses and organizations have spent this fall hosting interns from the USD Beacom School of Business.

They’re part of the BEST Sioux Falls program, which launched this year and was developed in partnership with the city of Sioux Falls, Sioux Falls Development Foundation and Greater Sioux Falls Chamber of Commerce.

We’ve worked very diligently with the businesses to make sure that we have really great projects for them to work on.”
