Brooklyn is the hippest area of New York City for artists, writers, filmmakers and all other varieties of creatives, particularly digital creatives making it a perfect location for Miami Ad School. It is a haven for many of New York’s cutting edge digital agencies, and has become a high-tech incubator for the digitally inclined. Our teachers are industry professionals who come from those agencies and all over New York City including: R/GA, AKQA, Droga5, BBH, Y&R, Ogilvy & Mather, Kaplan Thaler Group, HUGE,

Big Spaceship, The Barbarian Group, JWT, Carrot Creative and Publicis Modem to name a few. Our building is right on the East River overlooking the Manhattan skyline. Created as a sugar refinery then used as a warehouse, 10 Jay Street is a creative hub now home to production offices and studios. The school’s space resembles its factory origins with brick walls and overhead ducts. The walls have giant flat panel screens and touch screens that show the student exhibition of award winning work.

Skill and Portfolio Development

Students in the art direction and copywriting programs spend their entire two years in New York. 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.

Real-World Experience

In the 8th quarter of the two-year program students can study or intern in an advertising agency or company. This allows students to apply the skills they've learned, expand their network of industry contacts and get real-world experience.
