A Global Intellectual Capital

Providing cutting-edge insights to gaming industry leaders


The UNLV International Gaming Institute (IGI) is committed to providing cutting-edge insights to the global gaming industry. IGI provides research and programs to more than 50 jurisdictions across the globe—to leaders in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors.

In addition to our research and executive education offerings, the International Gaming Institute’s “Centers of Excellence” help us to achieve our status as the global intellectual capital of gaming. Each of these Centers has been developed to address a strategic problem that an academic institution’s unique spaces and structures can solve.

Together, we are the International Gaming Institute—a global intellectual capital.
