“Going to the school gave me the opportunity to hone my ability and to know if this business would be right for me. I can’t describe how much fun I’ve had”

Lyns Descardes M.AD Grad
Junior Art Director at McCann New York

My decision to join M.AD felt very much like a shortcut to certainty. The help and support of teachers, administration and classmates felt like turning on the car windshield wipers on a rainy day. I will be forever thankful for them not only setting the foundation for a stable and certain career path, but for helping me find myself and a better sense of identity.

“The speed at which consumer behavior changes coupled with the rapid pace at which technology develops means that none of us are doing the same thing week to week, let alone in two year increments. At M.AD I learned how creativescan move faster, keep up, and create for new mediums, new formats, new audiences.”
