American college is offering a degree in eSports Managment

While scholarships for esports athletes are slowly becoming the norm in American institutions, Becker College is taking it to the next level by offering the country’s first degree in Esports Management. The Worcester, Massachusetts college is set to offer a Bachelor of Science in Esports Management through the college of business beginning in the fall of 2019. The announcement states the program will focus on the business side of esports, giving students hands-on learning as well as assisting with paths to achieve careers in esports in fields like community management, game development, legal and accounting. Alan Ritacco, Dean of the School of Design and Technology said: “The rapid growth of esports brings with it new jobs and demands from the industry. That translates to tremendous career opportunities for our students. With a spirited college community that gets video games, adding esports management is a perfect fit.”
