Play like a Pro

The Eberhardt School of Business eSports Camp is a two-week program that will provide students an interactive, play-based experience in eSports. Students will develop individual and team skills for game play, receive analysis of game play and one-on-one assistance and coaching and learn about professions in the broad esports industry. The program concludes with a live play match.


eSports-focused presentations will include current Eberhardt School of Business staff and students, with guest presentations by noted experts in the esports realm. Students will be able to build their capabilities in the Eberhardt School’s Computer Lab, which will be converted to a multi-player gaming lab. Students will attend and participate in four daily sessions: two in the morning and two in the afternoon following lunch.
