CEIB Staff

​ 
Liz Hannum is coordinator for the Center of Excellence in Entrepreneurship and International business. She also is coordinator for the Office of International Programs' Study Abroad Program.
 
Liz helps the CEIB director expand entrepreneurship opportunities across the NSU campus and northeast South Dakota.
 
Liz grew up in Boston and holds a bachelor’s degree in geography from Bucknell University in Pennsylvania. She moved all over the country to work for small businesses and startups in the tourist industry and educational services.

 

She eventually returned to Boston, where she combined interests to start a nonprofit organization supporting refugees from Burma. Liz first started working with the Burmese when conducting research for a master's degree in international development on the Thai-Burma border in western Thailand.
 
Liz has lived in Wyoming, Colorado, Alaska, Thailand, Denmark, Ireland, and Peru. She has traveled extensively throughout Southeast Asia, South and Central America, and Europe. She recently returned from western Kenya, where she created and taught entrepreneurship classes for rural women.
