Vancouver's Master of Digital Media program is Canada's first professional graduate degree program in digital media. With input from academia and industry, the MDM Program's challenging curriculum is uniquely designed to transition students from diverse backgrounds into new and expanding digital media markets and opportunities. During the 12-month program and 4-month internship, graduates develop the professional skills required to be effective creators, practitioners and senior managers in the digital media industry.

Vancouver is a major digital media hub and has one of the top video game clusters in the world—companies such as EA, Capcom, Sega and Microsoft all have studios in Vancouver. Vancouver also has the world's largest VFX and animation hub, and companies such as Sony Pictures Imageworks, Industrial Light and Magic and Animal Logic all have studios in Vancouver.
