There’s no place like Hamburg. It is one of the top ten most visited cities in Europe – and once you’ve been here, you’ll know why. It’s full of museums, has more theaters than any other city in the world, an amazing nightlife and almost everybody speaks English. A terrific environment for pop culture and a young creative person who wants to take what’s happening this minute and mold it into wild, wonderful and unforgettable ideas.
And the Miami Ad School in Hamburg? It won the Future Lions and was awarded School of the Year in Cannes 2011 and 2012. The Australian “YoungGuns” named it School of the Decade. Hamburg’s students rake in the awards at all the major ceremonies every year (just check the statistics of every major student award show). 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, Germany’s most creative agency. The list of their accomplishments is almost as long as their hair.
The sole occupant of a spacious 2,000 m2 building, the Hamburg school has been established for 10 years now and it offers a full-time study program (not just evening courses). The big plus: international students should have no problem getting a visa.
