Institute for Sports, Business & Society
Welcome to ISBS!
Here at the ISBS, we examine the social and economic impact of sports. Approaching the issues with innovation and focus, we set new standards and, with support of our renowned partners and trustees, break new ground in both national and international research arenas.
Incorporating a balance of academics with expertise is paramount to us. Our research program aims to analyze relevant and intriguing topics by applying scholarly techniques and facilitating dialogues between opinion leaders and experts in the areas of sport, economics, and society.
In addition to the highly applicable and relevant academic studies conducted here, we identify new crossover trends in sports, economics, and society - convening a think tank of leaders, scholars, athletes, and young talent.
We welcome your interest in ISBS and look forward to engaging in dialogue and entering a lively exchange of ideas with you.
