Opintojakson kuvaus


Create a clear picture for students of various ways to venture into the gaming industry and provide ready ”recipes” for initiating different business functions on a practical level.


  • Realistic overview of the gaming industry and its current situation
  • b2c business: how to launch, among others, a publisher, investor, or indie game company
  • b2b business: sales channels for outsourcing and productizing the company’s/individual expertise

Ideally, students will not only grasp the information but also skillfully leverage it to generate innovative and realistic ideas for establishing a game company.
