Specialisation description

According to PWC, the global video game market will exceed USD 90 billion in 2020. Video games are the fastest growing segment of the entertainment market and companies operating in the industry attract the attention not only of players, but also investors and the largest global funds. Also in Poland, the video game industry is one of the most important sectors of the market. Polish companies such as CD Projekt, Techland, 11Bit and Playway are already outperforming companies from more traditional areas of the economy by their value and valuation. There are already over 2.5 billion people worldwide who can be called as "gamers." The largest markets for video games are the USA, China and Western European countries. At the same time, over 80% of the value of the entire video game market comes from the sale of video game software.

In such a dynamically developing industry there are new companies that are constantly emerging: development studios, publishers and game producers. In Poland alone, nearly 400 independent entities work on and create games, of which only publicly listed companies are already valued at nearly PLN 30 billion.

Field of study, video games management is addressed towards people who want to tie their professional future with the video game industry. We will educate future managers ready to perform key business roles in existing and emerging gaming companies.
