M.AD Atlanta

America's new creative hub.

Welcome to M.AD Atlanta—a cutting-edge learning space and a mind-bending creative experience. Here you’ll explore the boundaries of what you ever thought possible.

Explore ATL

Where the creative spirit reigns.

A retrofitted Airstream that doubles as a writing room. A classroom that looks like a hunter’s lodge. A table made like an upside down Herb Lubalin book. Funky reading rooms all around. Galleries of student work. Is this a design firm or an ad agency?

Discover incredible, unexpected spaces for creation, and collaborate with wild, peculiar minds like your own. You’ll never want to leave.

Housed in a 1940’s factory building at the end of Bennett Street, the campus is creativity personified. A professional photo studio and maker lab are ready for your next project. Co-working spaces, mammoth conference rooms, and multiple galleries encourage collaboration.

The city is a continuation of that spirit.

Outside, the city is a continuation of that spirit. For decades, Atlanta has grown in size and importance—today, it’s a focal point of the creative map. Whether you’re working with Google, Nike, Visa, or another of our incredible partners, you’ll find your school work incredibly fulfilling. You’ll find it’s like nowhere else on Earth.

No Professors Here—Just World-Renowned Experts
