Should a college student who wants to get in to the production side of video games look to take a major in say buisiness management or related buisness majors or somthing closer to computers.
Theres no major that maps well to production. Producers vary widely in their areas of expertise from: former artists to programmers to testers to business people. My boss is a senior producer who used to be in marketing. My executive producer used to manage a business software product line. Another producer I’ve met has an MBA from Harvard. Neil Young shared some tips with me on what makes a good producer here.

Removed the link to Koz’s email, I figure he doesn’t want to keep hearing from people through this page nor be exposed to more spam.
