THE GAME OF YOUR FUTURE: IT’S A WIN. WITH YOUR STUDIES IN E-SPORTS MANAGEMENT (MBA).
Whoever said computer games are not a sport, is wrong. Gaming is extremely demanding, both physically and mentally. Gamers need not only excellent hand-eye coordination and reaction speed, but also excellent spatial orientation. They also need a very strong ability to concentrate and a high level of stamina. In the USA and France, e-sports are therefore considered a sport and are officially recognised as such by the established sports associations. Even though Germany has not yet kept pace with this development, the gaming sector is booming here too.
In your MBA degree in E-Sports Management you will study all the aspects of the E-Sports scene. This includes the event management of e-sports tournaments and the marketing of e-sports organisations. At the same time, you will learn how to manage e-sports teams and individual e-sports players and accompany them on their career path. You will ultimately put your new skills into practice in your first project. After that, you will be ready for your master's thesis - and your future in e-sports management.
Information on accreditation and state approval can be found on the sub-page of the degree program.
