About NOBE

We live in an era where competition between technology based industries has forced companies to significantly redefine themselves. Employees are expected to work in cross-functional teams that understand both the technical and business aspects of the industry. The National Organization for Business and Engineering (NOBE) provides a learning environment that helps bridge the gap between business and engineering that is not only essential, but natural.

NOBE’s mission is to bring together individuals at corporate and academic institutions interested in both business and engineering and to integrate these fields into one practice. NOBE will serve as a crossroad and network for the unmet professional, leadership, technological and entrepreneurial development of these individuals. As a national organization, NOBE will maintain this network and continually build resources to help these individuals meet the constantly evolving demands they will face in today’s business world.

National History

In 2006, a member of the Society for Business and Management in Engineering (SBME) at the University of Illinois proposed the idea to take the organization to a national level to gain exposure and recognition, while providing an environment for students all over the nation who are interested in business and engineering. SBME contacted similar organizations at three other universities with this idea, and since then, students from the four universities have been collaborating on the creation of the National Organization for Business and Engineering. In 2007, this vision became a reality, and NOBE is now a growing national organization. In early 2009, the first expansion chapter at Drexel University was formed, and NOBE is currently expanding with new chapters starting this year.
