Program News & Highlights


Faculty in the Sport Management (SM) Program have worked tirelessly with many individuals at NDSU to bring eSports to campus. We are now proud to say that we have a stand-alone eSports lab in the Student (Memorial) Union that is professionally outfitted.

Thanks to this initiative, 1-credit activity classes are now live to all NDSU students. Also, throughout the prescribed course guide, SM students are presented with multiple opportunities to engage with the brand-new equipment and can further educate themselves on the intricacies of the eSport context.

Join us and learn to be an influential leader within the eSport industry!
