Riot Games

Like Blizzard, Riot Games has been a longtime partner to the Academy, advising our faculty on specialized classes that directly address the needs of the Riot Games production pipeline. These classes ensure that our students have a solid understanding of the subject when they graduate and are ready to enter the industry.
