Miami Ad School Students who spent at least one quarter getting real-world experience in an agency.
Miami Ad School Students who spend 2 or 3 quarters getting real-world experience in an agency.
Students in our two-year Portfolio Program start by spending their first year at any of Miami Ad School's locations around the world. After building a foundation, they have the opportunity to study and intern in up to four more cities in their second year. Every portfolio student can gain real-world experience within these four options:
Miami Ad School location
Students can attend classes at a Miami Ad School location in a different city from where they attended their first year. Partner with new students, take in the culture and expand your network of advertising professionals. This is also a great way to continue to take some classes you wanted but didn’t have time to in your first year.
Intern Labs allow students to get real-world experience with guidance. Four to 10 students spend the quarter as a group in an agency. Part of the time the students are working on live client briefs. Part of the time agency mentors are helping the students develop their portfolios or submissions to international student award competitions.
Go to school in an agency. Half of your classes are in an agency and half at Miami Ad School. The agency's creatives teach four to 10 students who participate in brainstorming sessions and seminars from other departments like planning, account services or production. In the evening, take classes at the school taught by advertising professionals in that particular city.
Miami Ad School interns are treated like junior creatives. They have the chance to brainstorm on client projects, attend meetings and present their ideas to the creative director. If the interns' ideas are selected by the client and produced, they will have the opportunity to participate in the production. All the students’ time is spent working on live client briefs.
