Bookmark and Share

A South Dakota Board of Regents committee has endorsed a plan to create a training academy that could result in bringing 1,000 new tech jobs to South Dakota.


Minnesota-based Eagle Creek Software Services announced last month it wanted to bring 1,000 information technology consultant jobs to South Dakota.


The company plans to build a new project center in Vermillion and partner with the University of South Dakota to help train potential employees.


USD will work in consultation with Dakota State University to create the academy and offer customized courses.


Paul Turman is the regents' vice president of research and economic development. He says the partnership is an exciting opportunity for South Dakota and its universities.
