Everybody calls Berlin the "new" New York and if you visit Berlin you'll see it's true! Berlin is probably the coolest city in the world right now. And you'll find everything that a creative needs: It's an ideal hometown for artists. There is film, design, advertising, art, photography, writing everywhere. And: It's not expensive, but full of life. There’s a youthfull, boasting and sometimes harsh energy in the city, joined by an impact that some consider to be more influential as New York’s today. Miami Ad School Berlin is located in Schöneberg in a wonderful old industrial loft - only a few minutes walk from the subway station.
The best instructors come here to teach: Creative Directors from Jung von Matt, Heimat, ServicePlan, Scholz & Friends, DDB, BBDO and many other well known agencies teach exactly what’s relevant and up-to-date in the industry. Then there are the two directors: Niklas Frings-Rupp won D&AD’s World’s Best Tutor Award and Oliver Voss was partner and Chief Creative Officer at Jung von Matt. The list of their accomplishments is almost as long as their hair.

Skill and Portfolio Development
Students in the art direction, copywriting and digital design programs spend their first year in Berlin. The courses the students take are practical and class projects are realistic. Since the classroom replicates the real-world, students develop the skills and portfolio needed to get a job in the advertising industry.
In the second year of the two-year program students have the option to study and intern in agencies and companies in up to four other cities around the world where Miami Ad School has programs. Students continue to develop their portfolio, expand their network of industry contacts and get real-world experience.
The Berlin school is BAföG accredited (for German citizens) and CSN accredited (for Swedish citizens).
The mission of Miami Ad School is to train the creative and strategic thinkers of the future before the future has happened; to engineer pop culture with creative insight and strategic thinking from a global perspective. Students learn to solve problems with whatever discipline, media, channel, skill or craft necessary.
For the CONCEPTUAL THINKING class, the teacher, Teresa Jung, gave a very special brief to her innocent class: Do something crazy that you would normally never dare to do. Outstanding things may happen once you leave comfort zone.
Shortcuts to creativity? Nope, nada, negativo! But let us show you where (and how …) to go for a great start into the big wide world of advertising.
