Birmingham City University has announced that its newly launched BA (Hons) Esports Management course has been accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).
The CMI accreditation approves the course’s approach of combining mainstream business and management theory with practical esports application to cover multiple aspects. These aspects include technology and digital innovation, marketing, events, operations and analytics.
“The Esports Management course has been a great success to date and the CMI accreditation further validates its strong links to industry and our commitment to developing work ready graduates and esports leaders of the future,” Dr Richard Oddy, Subject Group Leader at Birmingham City University, said.
The three-year-long bachelor’s programme claims to provide full exposure to the esports ecosystem, including internships and fieldwork in collaboration with a number of esports professionals and global esports organisations.
