Internships in the Game Production Management Major

Create a Highly Marketable Game Production Management Resume

Internships are a key part of our career-focused education. Positions in your field give you a real taste of your future career and a highly marketable résumé that will help you stand out to studios upon graduation. 

Through our Upside-Down Curriculum, Champlain students are ready for internships faster, giving you up to four years of experience in your field. 

Game companies are noticing our highly skilled Game Production Management students. Our Game students have interned at studios like Insomniac, Harmonix, Ubisoft, and Velan-just to name a few. In fact, this appreciation for Champlain's unparalleled GPM major has led Vicarious Visions to open a summer internship exclusively for game producers. Plus, at Champlain, you'll have the chance to intern all over the world.

Shanghai, China & Kyoto, Japan

As students within the Stiller School of Business at Champlain College, Game Production Management majors are eligible to apply for the Stiller School's prestigious Freeman Foundation Asia Internship Grant to study in Shanghai, China, and other Asian countries. 

Dozens of Game Production Management students have experienced life-changing internships with international gaming companies and studios, including internships at Ubisoft China. A new partnership in Kyoto, Japan, has opened doors to even more opportunities specifically for Game Production Management majors. 

Montreal, Canada

Many of our students have studied and interned abroad in Montreal, Canada, an international center for game design and a major player in the game industry. Game Production Management students have gained invaluable experience through internships at a diverse range of companies-from small to large and including incubators, education game creation, and content agencies. These companies include:

Our students in the Game Studio are provided with many opportunities to network with professionals, apply for jobs, gain experience, and learn about the game industry firsthand. 

The Emergent Media Center

The Emergent Media Center (EMC) is an academic Center of Excellence at Champlain College. Operating in partnership with industry businesses, public institutions, and nonprofits, the EMC has established a laboratory/studio environment in which students collaborate with peers, faculty, and clients to develop new concepts, processes, uses, and applications for games and other emergent media.

Through a paid position, work-study, or internship in the EMC, you can be part of a team that uses game technologies and emergent media to integrate art and code with cultural awareness, creativity, and communication.

How We Prepare You for Experiential Learning

We want you to be well prepared for your first internship, externship, or other field work. After your first year of exploratory practical education, you'll be ready to work with your career advisor to take the next step. 

  • The Upside-Down Curriculum allows you to get extensive classroom learning and hands-on experience with industry professionals in your first year, which gives you the real-world skills and qualifications to begin taking an internship or externship as early as the summer before your sophomore year.

  • Champlain's Career Collaborative will help you develop your professional résumé and hone your interview skills. Early on in your studies, you'll be able to show employers what you know.

  • Your professors will become your reliable mentors, pointing out the strategic academic and co-curricular activities that will help you build your professional skill set and enhance your résumé.

Local and national employers turn to Champlain for college interns because they are better prepared to work in professional environments than the majority of their peers from other institutions. Many Champlain graduates receive full- and part-time job offers from the organizations where they first took their internships or externships.
