Harness the Best Within Yourself and Become a Force of Nature

Sharks are dominant. They’re strong, fast and adaptable. Sharks always prevail. At Nova Southeastern University, we create Sharks. We give students the competitive advantage they need to become confident, capable, yet caring professionals.
Preparing to dominate is not about winning or losing. It’s about harnessing the best within yourself—and using that to inspire others—on the job, in your community, in the relationships you build. It’s about driving forward and becoming an unstoppable force of nature.

With a fast track to graduation, personal career coaches, access to our vast network of industry partners and a chance to explore your personal passions, you will always have an edge.

"If you are goal oriented and open to new things, then you should definitely come to NSU."


NSU at a Glance

Looking for an Edge?

Prepare for a real career, real contributions and real life.

It’s a competitive world out there. Today’s college graduates need an edge to outsmart, outperform and outlast the competition. At NSU Florida, we’ll give you that edge from day one—then help you sharpen it. Professors get to know you and help unlock your potential.

They’ll give you the skills and confidence to thrive in internships or service-learning opportunities offered by NSU’s community and business partners. You’ll also have a dedicated academic and career coach for all four years to guide your career planning and ensure you get the practical experience you need to build a strong experiential learning portfolio.

Why should you come to NSU?

Listen to current students talk about why NSU was the right choice for them. Professors who care, small classes, internships and a location that can’t be beat all make the list.
