UNLV Harrah Hotel College to Launch Gaming Innovation Course
LAS VEGAS – April 26, 2013 – Las Vegas is regarded as the center of innovation in the gaming industry, and a new course this fall at UNLV will give students a chance to learn directly from local industry leaders what it takes to bring their gaming ideas to life.
The Dr. Mark Yoseloff Gaming Innovation Program, offered through the UNLV Harrah Hotel College, will launch in August with a course on gaming commercialization. Undergraduate and graduate students will learn how to design technically advanced casino games for casinos and the Internet, walk through the patent process, develop business strategies and receive mentorship from top industry experts. The program is made possible through a $250,000 gift from the Yoseloff Family Charitable Foundation.
