    Did you know that esports is an estimated 1.5 billion dollar industry in the US alone? Global esports isn’t just about video games — it’s a complex ecosystem of developers, publishers, fans, athletes, teams, leagues, sponsors, platforms, and other stakeholders comprising a rapidly expanding area of growth within the larger sports industry. 

    Esports is even expanding to college campuses nationwide, with over 130 varsity teams active today. Now is the perfect time to jump into this emerging field. As a student in this course, you’ll explore the history, current state, and future trends of the field to better understand how esports functions as a standalone business as well as a part of the global sports industry. Whether you are interested in the sport, management, branding, or business aspect, this pre-college experience will expose you to the many career opportunities available in this exciting field.

    Ideal For

    • High school students who have completed grades 9, 10, or 11
    • High school students who want to go beyond gameplay to understand the unique opportunities and challenges presented by esports in the sports industry at large

    You'll Walk Away With

    • An understanding of the different stakeholders that comprise the esports ecosystem
    • The ability to explain how esports relates to the traditional sports industry
