Hear From Our Grads
  • Before M.AD, I was pretty much without a plan. I had just graduated with an English degree and my new father-in-law was wondering what I was going to do with it. I liked design but didn’t know much about it. I had no idea what I wanted to do.

    Director of Creative Strategy at Canadian Red Cross
  • I saw a brand planner opening at one of my favorite agencies...but wasn’t going to apply because I didn't have 3-5 years experience. So I talked to a few of my teachers from the course and Stephanie Grendzinski, who oversees the Bootcamp in Atlanta, and they all advised me to just go for it…

    And I got the job!

  • There’s nothing like this on Earth. At the end of your time, you’ll experience Portfolio Review—the ultimate career matchmaking opportunity. Students go through 10 interviews a day, meeting creative leaders and forging personal connections. Some get offers right away.
