The Yacht Captains Association (YCA) has partnered with Ft. Lauderdale-based Nova Southeastern University (NSU) to provide executive education and leadership training programs for yacht captains and crew.

“As a South Florida academic institution, we are based at the epicenter of North American yachting and understand the importance of the multi-billion dollar industry,” said John Riggs, director of the Hudson Center of Entrepreneurship and Executive Education, a division of NSU’s H. Wayne Huizenga School of Business and Entrepreneurship. “We are excited that through our partnership with YCA, the professionals who operate and maintain these yachts for high-net-worth individuals and companies will have access to the best research and ongoing educational opportunities available, and our faculty and student body will gain valuable insights into the industry.”

The college will also work with YCA to conduct research addressing yacht industry priorities.
