Utah - Eccles to Offer a Joint MBA / Master in Entertainment Arts & Engineering

New dual-degree option will cover the development and business sides of the game industry

The University of Utah's Eccles School of Business will launch a dual-degree MBA / Masters in Entertainment Arts & Engineering (MEAE) program.

According to a news release, the new dual-degree program is "designed to prepare [students] for all facets of the growing $91 billion video game industry, from designing and producing games to publishing them in a competitive market."

Indeed, the new joint program will delve into both the development and business aspects of the game industry. Through the MEAE program, students will be able to pursue the development side of games, through classes in game design, prototyping, and C++. With the Eccles MBA program, they'll learn about general business topics.

The program will take three years to complete. It will launch this fall.

The MEAE program is offered through a collaboration between the University of Utah's College of Engineering and the College of Fine Arts.

The Eccles School of Business also offers other dual-degree programs, which combine the school's MBA with degrees like an MS in Engineering, a JD, or a Master of Healthcare Administration.
