About Omaha


Omaha, Nebraska has received national recognition for many of the city's benefits.

The Creighton University Heider College of Business is located in the heart of downtown Omaha, the largest city in Nebraska. Omaha’s vibrant business community is home to four Fortune 500 headquarters—and nearly 100 Fortune 1000 companies with operations throughout the city. That means access to top paid internships for business students.

The Heider College of Business welcomes students to Omaha from all over the country and the world. In fact, 80 percent of our students are from outside of Nebraska.
