The Interactive Entertainment Executive (IEE) program is tailored for those currently in - or about to take on - senior leadership roles in the video game industry.
 
The IEE Program has been designed by the IEP Advisory Board to specifically meet the challenging and unique needs of the interactive entertainment business.  Unlike traditional executive management programs, the IEE curriculum delivers 100% industry relevant content through a combination of knowledge based learning and practical application exercises.  

Graduates of the IEE program are armed with the confidence to not only discuss critical issues of the industry, but with the skillset to apply that knowledge to real world situations and deliver more positive outcomes.

 
 

A FOCUSED PROGRAM THAT FITS YOUR NEEDS

IEE Certification is conducted in-person two days a month over a ten month period from December to June.  In addition program participants are expected to complete around 4 hours per week of online course material to prepare for the monthly in-person workshops.
 
This unique delivery format was developed with input from the IEP Advisory Board and recognizes the difficulty existing and upcoming executives have in finding time - both personally and in relation to their employer - in order to fully develop the skills needed as a corporate leader.
 
The IEE program allows leaders to develop in conjunction with their full-time employment, while delivering immediate and lasting education throughout the course of the certification.
