Our advisory board of industry experts helps us bring desired competence to fruition, guiding us in adapting and developing our curriculum to fit the latest needs.
The advisory board plays a critical role as it represents the games industry itself. It is the most important way for companies and employers to voice their opinions and express their future needs, so the education can be tailored to maximize the prospects for new graduates. Aside from their strategic role, the advisory board also has final say if a student is allowed to begin the education and to approve their graduation.
The PlaygroundSquad advisory board consists of leading companies from the games industry. Due to the education being a Higher Vocational Education (kvalificerad yrkeshögskoleutbildning), it also houses seats from Dalarna University and the municipal education unit.

The Gang is a developer studio with a mission to make brands matter in the metaverse. They specialize in creating and launching bespoke games and immersive digital experiences for the world’s biggest and most innovative brands, with expertise spanning Fortnite, Roblox, and beyond. Since its founding in 2019, they have built more branded metaverse experiences than any other company.
It all began when four university students dreamed of creating their gaming studio. Starting in 2017 as a small but passionate team, they released their first game, “A Writer and His Daughter”, the same year. Since then, they have released their second title, “Bramble: The Mountain King”.
Every cohort at PlaygroundSquad also has a student seat on the advisory board to represent themselves.
