No one's a stranger to Istanbul - even if you've just met, it feels familiar. It’s so ancient that it might be the memories of a great grandfather, preserved in its history, reaching out to you from the depths of the city. It feels oddly familiar. Istanbul is scattered, but the pieces come together somehow. It’s dynamic and vivacious, a bit frisky even. It’s the place to be for great entertainment and even better food. It speaks to you, in your own language – although its French or Russian might be a bit broken, you will never find it without words. Istiklal, a pedestrian street that simply never sleeps, is where one can find anything and anyone.

This is where Pop Culture becomes popular and this is precisely where Miami Ad School is located, just ten steps away from Istiklal. Here, you’ll drift away to the tunes of the street musicians - right before the horn of the man on a horse stirs you from your daydreaming. Close by, the German, the Brit and the Frenchman meet up, as if acting out a joke. Visiting an exhibit or two is part of your routine, something you do on your way to pick up coffee. Here you can be filled with inspiration simply by opening the windows. We admit, it’s all a bit bizarre – but who cares for the ordinary, right?

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.

Skill and Portfolio Development

Students in the art direction and copywriting programs spend their first year in Istanbul. The advertising 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.

Real-World Experience

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 advertising schools. Students continue to develop their portfolio, expand their network of industry contacts and get real-world experience.
