About the NSU Edge

Our Namesake Was A Difference Maker

H. Wayne Huizenga set success records in starting, acquiring, owning, and revolutionizing businesses like AutoNation, Blockbuster, Waste Management, and many more. He had ownership in all three major professional sports teams in Florida—the Dolphins, Heat, and Marlins. But through it all, he lived his commitment to putting people and planet before profit. He made a difference in the way others defined wealth, success, and purpose.

Come to NSU Business to be like Wayne. Be a leader. An innovator. A good-hearted citizen who gives back to your greater community. Be whatever you want to be. But above all, like Wayne, be a Difference Maker.
