Miami is one of the most unexpected cities in the country. It has gone through a renaissance of art, culture, music and yes, advertising. You will still find all of things people have come to love about this international hub and its Latin influence with an added element of creativity and entrepreneurship. Where else can you concept outside all year round, maybe even on the beach? Spend the afternoon in an independent coffee shop in the arts district then grab a drink at the local pop-up mixology lounge.
You'll hear English, Spanish, Portuguese, German, French and Italian all around you. A truly global immersion. Our teachers work at local hot shops and big international agencies. Sapient, CP+B, Alma DDB, Y&R, La Comunidad, Saatchi & Saatchi, McCann Erickson and every week we fly in an Industry Hero from somewhere in the world to give a talk then teach a class. Inspiration is around every corner in Wynwood, Miami’s famous art district and our neighborhood, even on our own building.

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 experience.
