Application Deadlines and Program Schedule

Application Deadlines and Program Schedule

The strategic planning boot camp starts once a year in October. The boot camp lasts for 3 months (12-weeks). 

The application deadline is six weeks prior to the start of classes. Please see our FAQs for application deadlines and the school calendar.

The strategic planning boot camp is a condensed program with classes during the week and weekends. Guest lectures on Friday evenings with weekend workshops on both Saturday and Sunday. Class schedule will change slightly halfway through the boot camp to provide additional skill-building courses. We do not recommend working during the boot camp.

At the end of the strategic planning boot camp, students will spend an intensive week in which they will go from door-to-door and be exposed one-on-one to many advertising and design company representatives in both interview and critique sessions. The representatives will, at the same time, inform them of their company’s philosophy, culture and give insight into their planning department. Students are expected to modify their presentation from their advice and counsel.
