The Gen.G esports organisation from South Korea and the Esports Centre at the University of Warwick are teaming up to host a special “Esports Winter Camp” for college students. The collaboration was announced through official Gen.G channels in China, and the event is set to take place between January 26 and February 5, 2024.
Exploring the Esports Industry Beyond the Classroom
The Warwick Business School Summer Camp is an unprecedented chance for high school students to spend 11 days immersed in the curriculum of one of the world’s leading business schools. The camp will expose participants to the gaming business beyond the classroom by taking them on field trips to see some professional esports teams and game studios in Leamington Spa, United Kingdom.
In addition, there will be a Q&A session where students may voice their concerns and gain insight into their options for studying abroad at the University of Warwick.
Warwick’s Esports Excellence and Gen.G Esports Gaming Dominance
Warwick Esports and Gen.G are dedicated to providing a first-rate experience for camp attendees. This course will help students make the transition from classroom theory to real-world practise in the esports business.
The University of Warwick in Coventry, England stands out for its robust collegiate esports programme and its state-of-the-art £275,000 esports centre, both of which will be unveiled in 2021. In April, the university won its sixth consecutive distinction as “Esports University of the Year,” and it also received a government grant of £135,000.
Gen.G is a 2017 esports organisation that has already made its mark in games like Overwatch, League of Legends, and VALORANT. Specifically, their League of Legends squad has won three straight League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) crowns and is presently a top contender in the ongoing World Championship.
