Becker College Recognized for Game Design Program

New England Council member Becker College was recently recognized by The Princeton Review for its video game design program. Becker, which is home to the Massachusetts Digital Games Institute (MassDiGI), was ranked number five on The Princeton Review’s 2016 list of the top 50 schools to study game design in the world.

Established in 2005, Becker’s game design program is relatively new. However, it has quickly made a name for itself and has been included on The Princeton Review’s list every year for the last seven years. The college’s program has found success thanks in part to its emphasis on providing students with experiences that reflect the job market, such as projects that require students to build products that solve real-world problems in an actual studio environment.

“We are proud and appreciative of our recognition in the industry—to be ranked number 5 in the world, and number 1 in New England,” said Paul Cotnoir, director of Becker’s design programs. “We will continue working hard to contribute to the innovation in interactive media and its growing employment pipeline.”

Becker isn’t the only New England Council member on the top 50 list. Drexel University, Northeastern University, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology all made The Princeton Review’s list as well. The New England Council congratulates all four schools on achieving the prestigious recognition.
