Learn By Doing

Strategic Planning isn’t easy. Sure, it’s incredibly satisfying and creative work. It’s incredibly important to the success of a creative endeavour. But it’s difficult.

It takes serious skill to balance different projects at the same time, to make insights that no one else is seeing, and to bring together the creative energy of a large and disperate team. There’s a hell of a lot to learn.

So how do you get the experience you need? By practicing for real.

In our Master’s program, we don’t believe in textbooks or exams. It’s all about exciting creative projects, real-world learning and one-of a kind practical experiences. No matter your level of experience, at MAD you’ll work on real-world projects for brands like Microsoft, Coke, and Burger King. That might be why our students have won 1,000+ industry awards.
