1,200+ Students Take Huntsman Course Via Interactive Broadcasting

When Dave Herrmann, executive in residence, talks about reaching all of his management students, he is talking about a reach that extends for hundreds of miles. Through USU’s distance education program, some of his classes are broadcast live to nearly 30 USU locations in places such as Moab, Tooele, Brigham City, Ogden, and Vernal.

Courses offered in Logan in areas like accounting, economics, business, human resources, and management information systems are available to students all around the state, says Reuben Talbot, marketing and graphics coordinator for Regional Campuses and Distance Education. More than 1,200 students each semester tap into the expertise offered by the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business without ever coming to Logan for a class.
