UNLV students learn ins and outs of gaming industry

11.12.2012     08:22 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Everyone knows that 90% of the classes you took in college were pointless. But UNLV is offering classes that are not only cool but ones that better prepare students for a career in the gaming industry. Good read courtesy of the Las Vegas Sun.

"We're not teaching students how to gamble," insists UNLV gaming professor Gary Waters, who teaches introductory classes in the gaming lab. "We're teaching students how to manage casinos. This is really important for the gaming industry."

"Our primary objective is so students can relate academic information to actual table games and slots, and get some operational experience," Waters said. "The more they get involved, playing it and dealing it, the better they perform in their internships and the more successful they are in their careers."

"The landscape has changed in the last few years," Waters said. "There are more college-educated executives leading these casinos. Education is more highly recognized in gaming now."
