Game Production Management Major Curriculum

The innovative Game Production Management program couples our highly regarded Stiller School of Business core with hands-on game development courses from our Division of Communication & Creative Media. You learn all the business aspects and game development processes you need to succeed.

 Our Upside-Down Curriculum gets you started learning game production management in your first semester. Start learning the intricacies of managing game development teams, the production pipeline, and how to bring video games to completion. You'll take game production courses, examine genres in games and gameplay styles, and play-test beta versions of games to learn how to design effective tests.
