Esports Player Development and Data Science

Course Description
Launch your career in professional esports and data science in this elite Academy experience.

During week one, practice playing esports while collecting and documenting data to improve your gameplay. These skills and techniques apply to any esport you're passionate about: League of Legends, Overwatch, Hearthstone, and more. You'll learn to study the tactics of pro players, analyze replays, and objectively assess your own skills and data to make strategic improvements in your play.

In week two, you'll put in some serious drill and practice time. With dedication to improving your skills in a systematic fashion, you'll approach your favorite games from a whole new angle. In addition to having your own data and experience, you'll be surrounded by like-minded players with the same goal as you: to be the very best. Along this journey, you'll develop into a tight-knit group that sticks together on the difficult but rewarding path to becoming esports pros.
