Game Production, Business Information Technology, Bachelor of Business Administration,

Welcome to Game Production! Here the students do not only earn a BBA degree diploma - they also gain significant project work experience in different game development projects!

Our programme is an active partner with Jyväskylä Digi and Game Center, giving our students a direct line of contact with local game development companies as well as the local game development collective.

Our students get to learn and interact with actual companies in their studies - practical training, projects and thesis work being the most common ways to co-operate with the working life. We also offer support for those interested in participating in important game development events on local, national or the North European level.

Study contents

In game production you can learn more about Game Development, Game Design, Game Programming, Cross-reality, Gamification, Monetization, Game Art, Visual Design, Audio and Video Editing. Learning by doing is the main theme in this programme. This principle is utilized in almost all the modules and courses in the programme. In addition to face-to-face courses the learning goals are achieved by doing exercises and course wide assignments. The assignments can be e.g. developing a small size proof of concept game or a theme song of a game. The assessment is mostly done by recognizing the skills and knowledge face-to-face with the teacher in charge. Exams are used deliberately.

Another fundamental method is project-based learning. Students will create teams to solve given problems and create solutions. Tens of credits can be obtained by working in teams and developing own products from technical and businesswise aspects.

The programme offers good variety of online and hybrid options for studies.
