About Us

The University of Nebraska at Omaha, College of Business Administration (UNO CBA) hosts one of the economic and business outreach centers of the University of Nebraska, the Nebraska Business Development Center (NBDC). NBDC began as one of eight University Business Development Centers in 1977 and has grown to a platform of services and programs that support business development and growth across Nebraska.

Program areas include:

  • The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) of the U.S. Small Business Administration
  • The APEX Accelerator Program of the Department of Defense Office of Small Business Programs (DoD OSBP)
  • The FAST program of the U.S. Small Business Administration
  • The EDA University Center of the U.S. Department of Commerce, NU Connections
  • SourceLink® Nebraska, a statewide SourceLink® Network

NBDC helps strengthen Nebraska businesses for a healthy economy and prosperous communities. NBDC is a statewide program, with 10 office locations across Nebraska. NBDC’s credentialed consultants provide confidential, one-on-one business services to entrepreneurs, established business owners, innovators and economic and community development professionals. The services of NBDC are provided mostly at no charge to the client.

The program is hosted by UNO CBA and supports its academic mission, and that of the other four higher education partners, by employing the talents of graduate and student workers in all programs of NBDC. These students receive applied, experiential learning opportunities, working directly with clients under the supervision and direction of the NBDC consultants. Students learn what it takes to start or grow a business in Nebraska, an experience that supplements their academic pursuits.
