But what sets TSMU apart from other similar programs is the depth of community that will be curated around the collective shared love for esports and the highly successful, highly profitable industry that surrounds it. Not only TSMU will provide internship programs and coveted career opportunities within the TSM organization, students now have the ability to learn and connect with the multi-billion dollar global esports industry in a much more direct and meaningful way, giving them the chance to develop the skills and the network needed to pave the way for future career opportunities.
"One of the most common questions I get asked is, 'How do you get into esports?'' said Allie Hahe, TSM Project Manager and Creator of TSMU. “In this industry, there has historically been a lack of a clear path on how to get involved, so it can be challenging for those who are interested in this business to even get started. This is why we created TSMU. We want to lead the way in creating new opportunities in the space, as well as providing education and insight for those looking to learn how they can work in the space."
