Video Games – a growing industry!
The video games industry has continued to break records in 2017, confirming its increasingly expanding growth. As an involved participant in the industry, LISAA accompanies this growth with the launch of three new courses in Paris and Bordeaux.
AN INDUSTRY THAT IS RECRUITING
Fed by thedigital revolution, the video games industry – which is the second largest cultural industry - has seen sudden growth with a turnover of 3.5 billion eurosin 2016. In this sector, France figures as Europe’s most attractive market.
A real competitor, France is recognised for the creative and technological talents of its recent graduates. This year, French producers and studios are set to create 1300 jobs - twice as many as the previous year.
LISAA LAUNCHES A VIDEO GAMES BACHELOR’S COURSE IN BORDEAUX
A sign of this growth, the French heavyweight Ubisoft, the third biggest business worldwide in this sector, has chosen to open a new studio in Bordeaux in March 2018, within an employment area which is already very attractive with regards to video games.
It is within this strategic environment that LISAA Bordeaux is launching a bachelor’s course in 2-D/3-D Video Game Design for the academic year of 2018. This is an innovative course, state-recognised, level 6 (EU) qualification and taught in the heart of one of the most dynamic areas of France in this industry.
LISAA is establishing itself as an active participant in this attractive industry by being the first big design school to launch a video games course in this region.
