Build a portfolio, earn a graduate degree or take a short course.

Portfolio Programs

If you want to be a creative in an ad agency, then you need a portfolio. Why not throw some internships and networking in there too - that is what you get from our two year advertising programs in Art Direction, Copywriting or Digital Design. One year of classes at a base school and one year to study and intern in up to four more cities around the world.

Degree Programs

You want to go to portfolio school but your parents want you to get a degree. Or, maybe you want a degree so you can teach at a university some day or work on the client side. Either way our joint program with Florida International University fills your needs with a Master’s of Mass Communications and a creative portfolio in Art Direction or Copywriting.

Boot Camps

For 12 weeks you’ll eat, breathe and dream strategy. Well not dream, you won’t be sleeping much, and it’s worth it. You’ll be taught from the best of the best within the field of account planning or social media. You’ll work with creatives and real brands. Each week you’ll execute and present all leading up to the final pitch. Why do you think we call it a boot camp?

“Miami Ad School is a warehouse of creative genius. It had turned me into a copywriter with experience at DDB Chicago and Carmichael Lynch.”

Peter Hajinian Copywriter Carmichael Lynch, Minneapolis

“All the skills I learned are still valid and I can now apply them to other industries as well. My personal and professional network is stronger and bigger than ever before and I can't wait for the future.”

Stefan Haverkamp Art Director Ogilvy, New York

“The boot camp reminds me of star wars. You will use all your energy to push against invisible barriers and your faith in your talent will be tested the whole time. But that's part of the training of a planning jedi. I am only here today because I was in the tough, intense, and damn inspiring Planning Boot Camp.”

Irina Tone Brand Strategist TBWA, New York

Miami Ad School is not a typical
advertising program.

"Real-world" experience before you enter the real world.

Build your portfolio, learn from and network with industry professionals, work with Fortune 500 brands, intern in agencies all over the world before even embarking on your professional career. This is what we mean by real-world experience. Are you interested in Writing? Design? Strategy? Social Media? We’ve got you covered. Whether you spend two years creating and interning, three months training rigorously in the latest strategy insights or continue your studies in communications with a degree and portfolio, you will leave with the skills and enthusiasm that agencies have come to know in a Miami Ad School grad. That is why they get hired, fast.
