Staffordshire University based in the United Kingdom is now offering a three year course for students interested in learning how to build a career in the gaming industry – particularly when it comes to throwing their own eSporting events.

With the eSporting industry booming to a great degree, the university is accommodating it with this unusual new course. It will offer top players a scholarship, and the course itself "focuses on the business and culture of eSports from developing teams to communities and a fan base" and will teach students how to host their own eSporting events.

The students will get to experience this industry in a hands-on way, and will visit eSports arenas in order to understand this booming industry.
