Global Thought Leadership
NYIT faculty and administration create and share their thought leadership throughout the world in a variety of forums, from presenting and lecturing on cutting-edge scholarly research, publishing in academic journals, writing op-eds for leading publications, or appearing in the media, to teaching the next generation of thought leaders in our very own classrooms.
Conferences, like the one NYIT hosted in China on MOOCs, showcase the breadth and depth of the university’s thought leadership.
We take special pride in bringing together world-class experts for lively discourse and debate on compelling topics. Some of our recent global conferences include:
