Forbes Lists Nova Southeastern University as one of America’s Best Midsize Employers


FORT LAUDERDALE/DAVIE, Fla. – Last month, Nova Southeastern University (NSU)  was ranked No. 133 in Forbes’ America’s Best Midsize Employers’ List.

Each year, Forbes seeks to discover which companies operating in the U.S. today are best at making their employees feel happy, inspired, and well-compensated. They round up the top 800 in a ranking they call their “Best Employers.”

With the help of their research partner, Statista – a massive statistics database and consumer research firm based in Hamburg, Germany – they formed and divided their roster of best employers into two categories: large ones with more than 5,000 employees, and midsize with between 1,000 and 5,000 workers.

NSU also ranked No. 24 when limiting the list to “Education” and No. 6 within the state of Florida.
