Miami Ad School is where creative minds meet. Something is always happening: street-art workshops, AIGA design events, Google training, stand-up comedy nights and coding hackathons.
We looked at how people learn and made each aspect an extraordinary experience. The campus is a creative playground. Six foot flamingos greet you at the front door. Street artists have covered the walls of the school in their visual stories. Classes are small. Students work in teams and learn by doing, often on real projects for brands.
Inspiration is around every corner. You'll learn to innovate and make with courses in advertising, copywriting, social media, design, photography, strategy and coding. Your instructors work at local hot shops and big international agencies like Sapient, Facebook, CP+B, Alma DDB, Y&R, The Community and every week we fly in an Industry Hero from somewhere in the world to give a talk then teach a class.
You'll learn the latest techniques, and strategies being done all over the world and graduate with real-world experience.

Skill and Portfolio Development
Students in the art direction, copywriting, digital design and digital photography & video programs spend their first year in Miami. 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, global experience.
