Nebraska Business Development Center
The Nebraska Business Development Center (NBDC) was founded in 1977 as one of the first eight centers established by the United States Small Business Administration's University Business Development Center program. NBDC provides management training, consulting services, and business-focused publications for Nebraska small business owners. Consulting and training cover such topics as grants, loans, and investor funding; business planning; marketing strategies; and government contracting. NBDC offers several certificates in various aspects of business, and offers assistance in preparing to obtain professional credentials. NBDC is a part of the University of Nebraska at Omaha College of Business Administration, and UNO faculty serve as consultants, instructors, and authors. NBDC also maintains close ties with the Omaha District Office of the Small Business Administration.
