Enhanced governance, compliance and technical standards in the global electronic gaming market drive innovation, control and leadership for all industry participants. In regulated electronic gaming markets, the need to protect culture and citizenry is paramount. This is achieved through the establishment of appropriate technical standards and the strict adherence to them. Regulators govern to ensure compliance with their legislated standards. Compliance with enhanced, open standards underpins the framework for product development and interoperability allowing for far greater innovation, enhancing management control and player experience. Operators benefit from innovation and increased competition among manufacturers competing for market share. However, the development of the regulated electronic gaming market will demand experts who have a far greater understanding of standards; therefore, their role and management expert becomes crucial.

Partnerships
The Macao Polytechnic Institute School (MPI) of Applied Sciences and GSA executed a Memorandum of Understanding in 2007 to exchange information to enable the creation of a technical education program for the local gaming industry. In 2010 this was followed by another Memorandum between MPI, GSA and BMM to enhance the collaborating in support of the original mission.

The collaborative effort, between Macao Polytechnic Institute (MPI), the Gaming Standards Association (GSA) and BMM provides a strong foundation for the development of an educational program specifically designed to supply the expertise necessary to meet the world market needs. The Bachelor of Science in Computing with its specialization in the Gaming Technology is the first such program of its kind. It offers not only the general technology requirements necessary to be successful in a technology filled world, but also a targeted skill that is instantly marketable in the fast paced and growing world gaming market. Because of the innovative two-pronged approach, this educational program will attract the young technology minded students that will drive innovation in the gaming market. The program will benefit regulators, operators and vendors worldwide by providing the fresh new talented professionals necessary to move gaming to the forefront of technology from all aspects. Regulators will be able to acquire the talent necessary to develop the technical standards necessary to ensure the integrity of gaming while allowing for advancement in technology. Operators will gain access to highly trained graduates who can deploy the advanced technology on the casino floor. Vendors will be able to obtain competent developers that already have the understanding of gaming and computer technology necessary to be instantly productive and ready to provide the new applications that will keep gaming exciting, and responsible. The result is that through the efforts of the three principle entities: MPI, GSA and BMM, the gaming industry will be assured of having the level of talent needed to ensure that the gaming industry and technology remain partners for the foreseeable future.
