Minor in Esports and Gaming Administration
Add to your major with a minor in Esports and Gaming Administration, lead the future of competitive gaming
In the same way that traditional sports have competitions in baseball, basketball, and football, esports encompasses competitions across a variety of video games. Just as the NBA and its teams need capable marketing, sales, and operations professionals, growing esports leagues and teams need the same to make their name known in this booming global industry.
Between 2018 and 2019, the number of jobs in esports nearly doubled and more people viewed the 2019 “League of Legends” World Championship finals, an esport tournament for the popular online game League of Legends, than the 2018 Super Bowl!
