The University of New Haven has announced an academic partnership with Twitch. The affiliation will support the University’s pioneering programs in esports that are officially launching in the fall.

“Our Esports and Gaming and Esports Management students will have the chance to learn from and build relationships with the executives of one of the most successful companies in the gaming industry,” said Brian Kench, Dean of the University of New Haven’s Pompea College of Business. “The interactions will provide unmatched learning experiences and incredible networking opportunities.”
