Next generation of esports leaders
A multimillion dollar gift from Robert “Bobby” Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard, will establish a multidisciplinary esports program at the U-M School of Information. Esports are organized video game competitions played for spectators. The contribution lays the groundwork for an esports minor at U-M by 2022 to help prepare students for careers in the burgeoning esports industry.
