Master esports Business ISDE
The exponential growth of esports has highlighted the need to professionalize the sector. There are training courses in the creation and development of video games, but no program like this one that trains professionals to deal with all aspects of a business of such growth.
This Master does just that, allowing students to learn with some of the leading professionals in the industry, giving them a more realistic perspective of the market than any other program currently in existence.
It is therefore a matter of training the future professionals of the esports industry, a sector in which, as with so many other technology-related sectors, there is today a greater demand from the industry for graduates with the appropriate education and training to meet that demand.
DURATION: one academic year
