Expert Class in Esports Management

Expert Class in Esports Management

The very first Esports university program of the Low Countries

By organizing the “Expert Class in Esports Management”, the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) stands out and positions itself as the very first university of the Low Countries with a post-academic program for the Esports industry.

The Expert Class is a ‘next-gen’ continuing program aimed at juniors and seniors with ambitions to grow into Esports-experts. The course is provided by lecturers of the highest level, keynote speakers and influencers from the Esports industry as well as from long trendsetting countries (Denmark, Germany, The United Kingdom, Ireland and The Netherlands).

Additionally, the start of this series of master classes ‘live on campus’ within the Faculty of Physical Education and Physiotherapy (PE) and its Department of Movement and Sports Sciences (MOSS) fits perfectly in the pioneering role of the VUB in terms of Digital Innovation and Artificial Intelligence. For Esports would not exist without the power of algorithms.

About Press - Vrije Universiteit Brussel

Vrije Universiteit Brussel is an internationally oriented university in Brussels, the heart of Europe. By providing excellent research and education on a human scale, VUB wants to make an active and committed contribution to a better society.

The World Needs You

The Vrije Universiteit Brussel assumes its scientific and social responsibility with love and decisiveness. That’s why VUB launched the platform De Wereld Heeft Je Nodig – The World Needs You, which brings together ideas, actions and projects based on six Ps. The first P stands for People, because that’s what it’s all about: giving people equal opportunities, prosperity, welfare, respect. Peace is about fighting injustice, big and small, in the world. Prosperity combats poverty and inequality. Planet stands for actions on biodiversity, climate, air quality, animal rights... With Partnership, VUB is looking for joint actions to make the world a better place. The sixth and last P is for Poincaré, the French philosopher Henri Poincaré, from whom VUB derives its motto that thinking should submit to nothing except the facts themselves. VUB is an ‘urban engaged university’, strongly anchored in Brussels and Europe and working according to the principles of free research.
