Center of Excellence in Entrepreneurship and Interanational Business (CEIB)
Center for Excellence in International Business & Entrepreneurship

The Center for Excellence in International Business & Entrepreneurship aims to increase economic opportunities for Northern students and South Dakota businesspeople by:


  • Driving growth in entrepreneurship and international business, and


  • Facilitating enterprise creation and expansion


At Northern, the center's objective is to integrate theory with practice. At the CEIBE, students' studies may take the form of a startup of their own or an institutionally created (such as a gallery or advertising agency) enterprise or a private startup. In this way, students are intimately involved in the creation or expansion of profitable enterprises, with emphasis on creating multinational entities.



South Dakota MarketPlace

​South Dakota MarketPlace (SDMP) is a how-to conference targeted to rural entrepreneurs, providing access to thought leaders, resources and ideas to expand business.  The conference also offers exposure to new ideas, goods and services, and welcomes presenters and exhibitors who can help entrepreneurs make an immediate, positive difference in their business.

The next conference is tentatively set to be held in March 2015 in the Student Center at Northern.


Business Connections

Business Connections is a free speaker series connecting entrepreneurs, small business people and students with regional and national thought leaders on a variety of topics. Business Connections' goal is to stimulate new conversations about starting and growing business in northeast South Dakota.


Business Connections events are held September-November and January-April at the NSU Student Center. 


NSU High School Business Symposium

Each fall, high school students from around the region come to Northern to hear enlightening speakers and panelists who describe what students can expect beyond high school regarding higher education and future employment.
