On January 9, 2023, at the Barcelona International Gaming Center (BIG-C) headquarters, the opening ceremony of the V edition of the Master in International Esports Business took place in Barcelona. It is one of the most prestigious face-to-face master’s degrees internationally, as well as a bet on success, due to its exponential growth from year to year.
This year’s promotion is made up of students who have had the opportunity to choose between face-to-face, online, and streaming formats, coming from more than 8 nationalities. An international character that supposes an added value, due to the possibility that it will offer students to enrich themselves culturally and to weave a network of relationships for their professional future.
