2 Best Esports Universities in Canada 2024


Esports has grown tremendously and is now recognised as a sport and a profession. Esports education and certification have become more accessible in recent years. In addition to professional esports education opportunities, there are university esports programs, diploma esports programs, and collegiate esports options.

Esports courses and qualifications cover everything from business, management and marketing to tournament organization and technical aspects. Like traditional sports athletes, professional esports require coaches, trainers, managers, and physical therapists. Of course, the video game industry provides many game design, coding, and publication opportunities.

It's also noteworthy that esports programs are offered worldwide, not just in the US, Europe, Canada, and Asia, as this new industry has reached all national boundaries and generations. In Canada, many colleges offer 2-year diploma programs in the subject along with universities. Thus, we will also introduce colleges as there are many options in esports education.

Let us introduce you to the 2 best esports qualifications you should take advantage of.
