Experiences from the Previous Game Executive Programs

The daytime lectures were given by renowned business professors. The evening sessions consisted of visits to many of Helsinki’s gaming companies, such as Next Games and Playraven, as well as companies supporting gaming, such as Fondia and Barona...", says Lauri Järvilehto, CEO, Lightneer Inc.

“Absolutely helpful insights into the game startup scene. I learned the essential skills for leading a game startup and the things you need to think about in order to be successful.”

“The program was extremely successfully drafted and executed. It covered all the major topics needed to build a successful business for the gaming industry. Even if the lectures seemed a little off-topic from the game industry perspective, I've learned that they might still become handy at some point. The game industry is still a young industry, and will transform more towards other industries as time passes. Thanks to this program, we now have the sense of how to react and adapt to that, at least at some level.“

“This program opened my eyes. I thought that I knew pretty much everything about the issues I need to take into account in my business. I did not know. Now I know better. For me the most important and useful aspects were learning together and sharing experiences.”
