"Game Design Curriculum is special because of the inspiring specialists as lecturers. They speak from the experience and share valuable practical knowledge you’d never find on your own. As an added bonus game design skills can also be used in the advertisement industry."

"Töötades programmeerijana ning õppides EEK Mainoris olen täiendanud oma praeguseid programmeerimisteadmisi ning omandanud uusi. Olen saanud algteadmised ja oskused mängude loomiseks, ülevaate arendusetappidest, arendusega kaasnevatest probleemidest ja headest tavadest.Samuti teadmisi kasutajaliidese ja kasutajakogemuse kujundamise osas ning mängumootorite ja mobiilimängude loomise kohta. Tänu meeldivale õpikeskkonnale ning paindlikule õppevormile on õppimine töö rvalt väga mugav. Erilist tunnustust väärivad suure kogemustepagasiga õppejõud."
