Fully remote businesses are becoming the desired workspaces of today. This notion is supported by some surprising insights and statistics in “Here’s Why Millennials Are Starting Fully Remote Businesses–Should You Follow Suit?“ a recent Forbes article penned by digital marketing specialist, Larry Alton. Research strongly suggests that these new work-from-home models raise productivity and ingenuity. Some of the game-related pros and cons of this paradigm shift are sited in Gamasutra’s “Working Remotely: Yes, It Sounds Good, But How Do You Actually Do It” by veteran game developer, Jake Simpson. LCAD’s fully online MFA program in Art of Game Design takes this shift and its implications seriously.

Education is a business. This is why our MFA program in Art of Game Design is proactive in responding to trends and business structures that its graduates will experience in the workplace.
