It’s More Than a Game, It’s a Career

From players to programmers, the gaming industry is booming and needs business-minded leaders. Between 2018 and 2019, the number of jobs in esports nearly doubled – growing a staggering 185%. In addition, there are numerous business jobs in the games industry, including roles in distribution, research, sales, and marketing. The explosive growth in esports has created a demand for business professionals with a solid understanding of the nuances of the industry.

Gaming Administration professionals need a lot of expertise: not just tech and business, but a solid understanding of games and gaming culture. A degree in esports and gaming administration provides flexibility, innovative engagement and industry-wide opportunities.

With the creation of the new Esports Gaming & Administration degree, I am excited to see the students experience a fantastic curriculum combined with the co-curricular opportunities in the C-SC Esports Varsity Collegiate program.
