We pride ourselves on being on the leading edge of the industry revolution. This is apparent in our connections to the eSports sector, cutting-edge research initiatives, exploration of sports technology, including virtual reality and artificial intelligence, and the utilization of latest social media metrics. We are constantly monitoring the most current trends and adapting.  As a sports analytics practitioner, I'm constantly exploring emerging technologies so that the Tisch Institute can be among the first to integrate new insights into the classroom.


Our Transformation Thru Sport initiative is a program through which our students can effectively and thoughtfully engage with the community and use sport to effect change for good. Our goal is to instill in our students a habit of service and involvement.

Our faculty is drawn from the professional sports industry community, which leads to deep, meaningful connections—an asset to students in the classroom, pursuing the many local internship opportunities, and building a lifelong career network.


We are very proud of today's Tisch Institute, but that only serves as motivation to achieve even greater heights.
