B.B.A. Esports & Gaming
The esports and gaming administration degree educates students about the nuances of the gaming industry. It seeks to address gaps in the traditional business education that - if addressed - would result in graduates who are significantly more employable within the games industry. Specifically, in addition to general business administration, this program teaches 1) the process by which games are made, 2) the go to market strategies typical of the industry, and 3) a clearer understanding of the various elements that come together for a successful esports event or league.
