Neil Malvone, assistant professor of sport management and esports management, is a guest on One-on-One with Steve Adubato to talk about Caldwell University’s new bachelor’s program in esports management which is preparing students for careers in the booming electronic sports gaming industry. He explains how the coursework focuses on opportunities for employment in finance, marketing, event planning, operations, entertainment and more.
The program is one of the first of its kind in the nation and is being offered within Caldwell’s School of Business and Computer Science.
Malvone also shared that the university has launched its inaugural season for its Cougars esports team which plays in a beautiful new state-of-the-art esports arena. The gaming area features two rooms and was made possible by LG Electronics, which donated 12 240Hz gaming monitors and six large-screen 4K displays, and by Cisco, which donated a network switch and two cloud security cameras.
