At Nova Southeastern University, we create Sharks. We give students the tools they need to become confident, capable and caring professionals who outsmart, outperform and outlast their competition. We call it the NSU Edge.

When you come to NSU, you know you’re going to be part of something bigger than education and your career. You’re going to be contributing to the world."
