SPEARFISH, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Board of Regents has approved two new business minors at the University of South Dakota.

The minors in business analytics and operations management were created to meet emerging employment trends. They’ll be available at USD 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.

Federal labor department projections through 2022 identify a 7 percent job growth for operations managers. Strong national job growth of 16 percent to 32 percent is estimated for business analysts.
