THE GAME OF YOUR FUTURE: IT’S A WIN. WITH YOUR STUDIES IN E-SPORTS MANAGEMENT (MBA).

Are Computer Games not a sport? Quite the opposite: Gaming is extremely demanding, both motorically and mentally. Not only does it require excellent hand-eye coordination and lightning-fast reaction times. It also requires excellent spatial orientation, the highest level of concentration and extreme stamina. This is precisely why E-Sports are considered a sport in their own right in the USA and France and are officially recognised as such by the established Sports Associations. Germany is still lagging somewhat behind this development, but the gaming sector is booming here more than ever.

Why you should study E-Sports Management (MBA) 

Whether a Master's programme or an MBA programme is the better choice for you depends entirely on your professional goals and your individual requirements. While a classic Master's programme allows you to further deepen the specialised knowledge you gained in the course of a Bachelor's programme, an MBA focuses even more on imparting specialised knowledge such as leadership strategies and management skills. However, both forms of study offer excellent career prospects and attractive salary benefits if you want to start a new career, change industries or recommend yourself for higher positions. In any case, your IU degree programme will help you progress, as it not only provides you with specific Business Administration knowledge for a selected subject area, but above all optimally combines theory and practice. 

 

Your IU studies in E-Sports Management 

In the MBA in E-Sports Management at IU International University of Applied Sciences, you will study the E-Sports scene in all its facets. First, however, you will learn the Business basics of the Masters of Business Administration, including Leadership, International Marketing, Strategic Management and Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Then you will dive deeper into the world of E-Sports: in addition to the Event Management of E-Sports Tournaments or the Marketing of E-Sports Organisations, you will also learn about the Management of E-Sports Teams or individual E-Sports players. You can put your new skills into practice directly in your first project, so that you can later start directly in the field of E-Sports Management. 

 

A look into the future: what you'll do after graduation 

Online gaming is now an industry worth billions. The enormous prize money that is paid out at the worldwide E-Sports events also speaks for this. As a degree programme, the subject may still be very young, but with your MBA E-Sports Management you are fully committed to your professional future. And you will open up a wide range of career opportunities in an up-and-coming industry that not only needs experienced players. At least as important are the professionals who are well versed in the Management of Athletes and Events. Whether as an E-Sports Manager for the development of Marketing and Social Media Strategies or as an Event Manager for E-Sports. As an Event Manager in E-Sports for the Planning, Organisation and Realisation of large-scale events. Or as a Team Manager in E-Sports, to accompany individuals or entire teams on their individual career paths.
