Partner Spotlight: DeVry University

12 Mar 2020

The IGDA believes strongly in the value of education and self-improvement, that is why we are pleased to highlight our partner, DeVry University. 

DeVry University dates back 85+ years – with a rich history rooted in innovation and driven by modern technology. Their founder, Dr. Herman DeVry, was the inventor of the first portable motion picture projector. He identified a need for tech-empowered, career-focused education, and established DeVry on the belief that visual learning would not only advance education – but change the world.

DeVry’s mission is to foster learning through high-quality, career-oriented education that integrates technology, business and the arts. This fits well with IGDA’s own mission to support and empower game developers around the world in achieving fulfilling and sustainable careers, especially as game development so strongly incorporates technology and art. 

Game development careers require continuous learning and skill growth. In this competitive industry, you will shine by demonstrating your desire to improve and the management skills required to lead yourself and your team.

 DeVry offers hands-on undergraduate and graduate programs both online and on campus to meet the needs of their diverse student population.

IGDA, in partnership with DeVry University, is proud to offer IGDA members the following education benefits you can use to help you take your career to the next level:

  •  JumpStart Your Education:  Take one 3-credit course for academic credit at no tuition cost.
  •  Partner Group Tuition Rate (25% savings):  Enjoy partner tuition savings as you continue with your education 
  •  Transfer qualifying credits toward your degree program
  •  Family Education Benefits:  Partner benefits are extended to dependents of qualified associates 

These educational opportunities are just one of the many ways that the IGDA and DeVry are working towards helping game developers continue the development of their careers.
