From INFINITY and Infinity Gaming Center we work to boost the Esports and gaming industry and this specialization is the answer to what the market currently demands worldwide.

The specialization will have two main blocks. The first will include courses on sports organization; innovation in esports coverage and organizational communication. While the second is composed of: marketing for teams and leagues; monetization and sponsorship and sports manager.

The Esports industry reaches some 300 million viewers worldwide and is surpassing traditional sports. Undoubtedly it has a huge growth and a great potential in Costa Rica and the region. That is why we launched the Specialization in Esports and Sports Communication, to offer quality training in the industry. This agreement further strengthens the efforts of both organizations as it unites one of the most important educational centers in the country with one of the most relevant teams in the region and the world so that our students can have the necessary tools to enter this industry that continues to grow.
