Esports and event management at The International

Do you want to rule in the world of esports? Try to imagine being one of the actors behind Copenhagen Games or one of the big esports teams. 

The International offers a great opportunity to ambitious young people who want to do more than "just" play. In a few short years there will be a lack of qualified young people who understand the world of esports and how to manage, arrange and execute the many esports event - big and small - in Denmark as well as internationally.

Unique esports and events elective

If you want to be part of this elective and create a future for yourself within the world of esports as the one who creates the coolest events, then this is what you will learn. 

  • At The International, you will have 10 hours scheduled esports per week.
  • We will combine subjects such as Social Media, branding and innovation with esports and starting a business.
  • We will work with our students' understanding of and communication on media platforms such as Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook and websites as well as storytelling and developing ideas.
  • You will learn to analyze, discover tendencies, and create a strategy for your communication.
  • You will of course also receive game coaching to develop your skills and there will be physical training as well which will help improve your overall skill level.
  • Last – but not least – you will gain experience with planning and executing esports events.

To add to the daily training and teaching, we will throughout the school year be visited by some of the most competent and prominent actors within the world of esports, who will join us for workshops, events and casting, etc.  

In collaboration with

Esport Service is Denmark’s biggest actor when it comes to teaching esports, developing talent and arranging events. They have entered into a collaboration with The International – Academy and Boarding School of Denmark. The project is aimed at educating young people to be the players behind the scenes of tomorrow’s international esports events.  

Zahid Butt has since the beginning been a big part of the event planning and execution of esports events in Denmark. Today he is the main figure behind Denmark’s biggest esports event Copenhagen Games.

Esports is ahead of the gameEsports has developed vastly and fast, and it will continue to do so in the coming years. That is why we need more people, who understand the complicated puzzle it is to prepare, set up and execute esports events of every kind and scale.

Camp and workshop

In June an event will take place for all the coming students who will be a part of the project. This will allow them to see the facilities that are being created for this specific purpose. 

There are limited places available and the interest is expected to be great – so it’s important to act fast if you want to be a part of the first batch who will start in August.  

Unique and innovativeEsport Service is looking very much forward to the new project at The International. It’s innovative and much needed. I believe many within the field of esports has sorely missed a more wide-ranging offer that not only includes the opportunity to improve at esports but also encompasses the wider field and the industry behind which makes it all possible.
