Becker College Announces New Bachelor of Science in Esports Management Degree
Sunday, June 24, 2018
The four-year degree is launched by Becker’s School of Design and Technology.
“The rapid growth of esports brings with it new jobs and demands from the industry. That translates to tremendous career opportunities for our students. With a spirited college community that gets video games, adding esports management is a perfect fit,” said Alan Ritacco, dean of the School of Design and Technology.
Becker’s Esports Management major — offered through the College’s business department — will equip students with the knowledge and experience needed to excel in one of the fastest-growing sectors in the sports and entertainment industries.
Focused on providing students with practical, hands-on learning and an entrepreneurial outlook, the degree will prepare students for the future of work in the booming esports industry.
Careers in esports encompass content creators, streamers, influencers, community managers, game developers, producers, and commentators, in addition to marketers, accountants, lawyers, a host of other experts who work for esports and game companies, and, of course, professional gamers.
Transfer students interested in the esports management major can begin inquiring about January admission immediately. Enrollment for first-year students begins in the fall of 2019.
