Nova Southeastern University was started in 1964 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., as Nova University of Advanced Technology. In 1994, the school merged with Southeastern University of Health Sciences to become NSU and has grown into the eighth largest, nonprofit independent university in the nation. There are more than 28,000 students in attendance and more than 148,000 alumni.


Nova Southeastern University’s H. Wayne Huizenga School of Business and Entrepreneurship is named after the creator of three Fortune 500 companies, a five-time recipient of Financial World magazine’s CEO of the year, and the 2005 recipient of the Ernst & Young World Entrepreneur. The business school is accredited by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education.


Students can finish the 43-credit hour program in as little as 18 months or can take up to five years. Each term is 10 weeks in length, which is the same as the full-time MBA. The business school offers 14 MBA degrees.

The start dates for the four terms are Jan. 1, April 1, July 1 and Oct. 1.

Prerequisite credits from a different regionally accredited institution may be accepted if the course grade is a C or higher. If the student has a cumulative GPA of at least 2.50, the GMAT will be waived.


  • Completion of the graduate school application
  • A bachelor’s degree with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 from an accredited four-year undergraduate school
  • The minimum GMAT score required is 450, but is necessary only if the student’s cumulative undergraduate GPA was 2.25 to 2.49
  • There is a $50 application fee

There are additional requirements for international students.
