Mumbai is the commercial and entertainment capital of India, and one of the largest growing economies in South Asia. A set of seven islands originally inhabited by the fishing community “kolis”, Mumbai has had a large number of rulers and owing to its location has been a center of trade for centuries. It was at one time a key port in Asia for the cotton trade. Parel, where all the old major cotton mills were, is where Miami Ad School Mumbai calls home. Now it is a hotspot for all the leading ad agencies and luxury residences. It is also a shopping mecca with popular music and dance clubs.

It’s no coincidence that the birth of pop culture engineering in Asia would take place here.As you step onto the street, you might see a dabbawala carry group lunches, tourists sipping their café lattes or a Bollywood star chauffeured to the nearby historic Raj Kamal Studios. A short cab ride takes you to Downtown Mumbai, or the Fort area, where most of the financial institutions, the Mumbai University, the major art hub of the city and the Gateway of India lay. If you want to be in a place that doesn’t let you forget the past yet inspires you to push ahead to your future passion and dreams, Mumbai is it.
