B.B.A. Esports & Gaming
Why study Esports and Gaming Management
Very few schools offer a focus on the business side of the games industry. Stand out in a growing sector.
What is it?
- Esports is a form of sport competition using video games. Esports is a booming global industry where skilled video gamers play competitively. In the same way that traditional sports have competitions in baseball, basketball, and football, esports encompasses competitions across a variety of video games.
Why is it practical?
- Just as the NBA and its teams need capable marketing, sales, and operations professionals, growing Esports leagues and teams need the same. Plus graduates of this program could work for the video game companies producing the games.
- Between 2018 and 2019, the number of jobs in esports nearly doubled. Maybe the most eye-popping stat comes from a recent Esports tournament that attracted more online viewers than the Super Bowl!
Why is it unique or exciting?
- The program has partnerships with Unity Technologies, the world’s most-used game development tool, and the International Game Developers Association. Both partners will keep content up-to-date and help with job opportunities
