NJIT introduces new concentration in sports analytics within the management school

The Martin Tuchman School of Management at the New Jersey Institute of Technology is thrilled to announce a new concentration in business and sports data analytics that will be available to undergraduate students starting in the fall. This concentration will focus on teaching students the data science behind the booming sports industry, with a particular emphasis on the many professional and Division I collegiate teams in the New York metropolitan area, including NJIT’s own 17 Division I programs.

As part of this new concentration, analytics courses will already be included in several other concentrations in the School of Management, such as accounting systems, finance, innovation/entrepreneurship, management information systems, and marketing. Dean Oya Tukel explained that creating this new concentration was aimed at incorporating advanced analytics courses with a focus on artificial intelligence, as this is becoming increasingly important in today’s business world.

Lenny Kaplan, Athletics Director at NJIT, expressed excitement about the potential for collaboration between the Highlander teams and students in the business and sports data analytics concentration. He emphasized how using analytics can provide a competitive edge even with limited resources compared to other programs. By utilizing data from tools like heart monitors and sleep trackers, coaches can make informed decisions that may lead to strategic changes in gameplay and ultimately impact the outcome of a game.
