What It Takes to Get In
Most of our students have an undergraduate degree—but
they come from all Kinds of backgrounds. Economics, theatre, fine arts, advertising…even political science. We find that it helps bring a different perspective to the table.
However, all you really need to apply to one of M.AD industry
leading creative programs are a high school diploma, a creative spark, and the willingness to put in the work.
Why Go M.AD?
Customize Your Education
The M.AD model is built to refine and enhance each student’s natural abilities. It’s an adaptable system. Intern at Ogilvy in Tokyo, then take classes in San Francisco…or try some time with another major agency.
No matter what you need to thrive, we’ll make it work. Through the school’s close partnerships with the creative industry, you’ll have hundreds of opportunities to extend your learning beyond the walls of your home campus.
Learn From the Best
Our teachers are industry professionals—from worldwide networks like Ogilvy, Sapient, 360i and R/GA, slightly smaller agencies like Droga5, Cutwater and Alma, global companies like Google and Instagram, and start-ups you’ll hear about soon.
They teach our students the latest trends and techniques they use everyday at their jobs.
Win Awards and Get Noticed
Year after year, our students win more awards than any other creative school. It’s a testament to the way our instructors go above and beyond—pushing students to build new skills and then put themselves on display.
As a result, at any major creative competition under the sun, you’ll find a contingent of M.AD students showing off (and winning). When our students graduate, they’re likely to have a brilliant award to dangle in front of any potential recruiter.
Build a Network and Get Hired
Students who come to M.AD are joining a creative family.
Our instructors are professional creatives. Our grads are leading thinkers, makers, and doers in ad agencies, design companies, and cutting-edge brands all over the world (think Google, Goodby Silverstein, TikTok, etc). Most importantly, we make sure each student gets to practice on real projects for real clients while they’re still in school.
All that means that when M.AD students graduate, they leave with a phone full of 100+ professional contacts, to help them find an audience for their work and get a job right out of school.
The School of DOING
Think of all the incredible people you ever admired. Thinkers, writers, dreamers, creators…how did they make their mark?
Here’s the truth: they did something. They became great by working at greatness. They practiced, and practiced, and practiced some more.
Practice is the fundamental principle behind everything we do. We believe that creativity is a skill to be honed and developed. We also believe that experience is the greatest teacher. At M.AD, we give each student the opportunity to access experiences that bring out their most creative self.
Our Students start their career at:
Before M.AD, I was pretty much without a plan. I had just graduated with an English degree and my new father-in-law was wondering what I was going to do with it. I liked design but didn’t know much about it. I had no idea what I wanted to do.
I saw a brand planner opening at one of my favorite agencies...but wasn’t going to apply because I didn't have 3-5 years experience. So I talked to a few of my teachers from the course and Stephanie Grendzinski, who oversees the Bootcamp in Atlanta, and they all advised me to just go for it…
And I got the job!
There’s nothing like this on Earth. At the end of your time, you’ll experience Portfolio Review—the ultimate career matchmaking opportunity. Students go through 10 interviews a day, meeting creative leaders and forging personal connections. Some get offers right away.
