Emerson's Summer Pre-College Esports Institute aims give an insider perspective of the inner workings of the competitive video gaming industry. This program will not teach you how to play video games but rather introduce you to the industry that exists behind the scenes and the types of career opportunities available. The Institute covers areas rooted in the intersection of technology, media, marketing, branding, management and broadcast fields. Students will create a portfolio of all the information that they will learn including: a marketing plan for an event, a sponsorship proposal, and a video clip of a livestream broadcast that will be presented on the last day.
The Esports Institute is a noncredit program.
