As soon as David Leek was tall enough to reach the keyboard on his family’s old IBM computer, he says he was interested in games and technology. He is now studying Game and Application Development at the Minnesota School of Business – Richfield campus, and has found it to be very beneficial in preparing him for a future career in the industry.
David loved growing up on a farm but wanted to pursue a degree that encompassed his passion for gaming. He chose the Minnesota School of Business because of its hands-on reputation, and he describes his educational experience as an interactive learning environment – one of the key aspects of the Educational User Experience.
“The faculty is involved, the atmosphere is cozy and the administration is responsive,” he says. “I also love the service learning projects.”
At the end of his 36-month program, David will have a bachelor’s degree and a portfolio displaying his work. David also enjoys that he can get feedback from his instructors on those projects.
“You will not find more engaged and more knowledgeable teachers anywhere else. They’re interested in the subjects they’re teaching,” he says. “Most of my instructors are easily best in the field. They often have industry jobs and give great insight.”
David would recommend Minnesota School of Business to anyone considering furthering their education.
He says, “It’s a great place to learn.”
