Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Undergraduate Programs

The Esports and Gaming Administration concentration of Business Administration is designed to provide students with a strong business foundation in management, marketing, economics and finance/accounting. In addition, industry leaders at Capcom, Riot, and other esports adjacent companies were consulted in the creation of the courses that comprise the Esports & Gaming Administration concentration to result in graduates who are significantly more employable within the games industry. 

Two other industry leaders were heavily involved in the creation of the Esports & Gaming Administration concentration courses:

Unity - Unity is the world’s most-used game engine. It powers 50% of Mobile games and 60% of  Augmented-Reality and Virtual Reality content. The Unity engine is intended to be readily accessible, low-cost, and powerful. The Introduction to Games Course was developed using materials provided by Unity.

IGDA - The IGDA (International Game Developers Association) is a nonprofit professional association whose stated mission is to “support and empower game developers around the world in achieving fulfilling and sustainable careers.” The Esports & Gaming Major was developed with significant input from the IGDA’s Game Education Chair, Suzanne Freyjadis, and conforms to the IGDA 2020 curriculum framework as closely as possible.
