The Copywriting Portfolio Program
2 years to boost your career.
A copywriter is a modern storyteller. A problem seeker, a raconteur, an entertainer, a brand-building wizard…all rolled into one.
Working together with an Art Director, you’ll master the art of collaborative creativity, inventing new concepts every to satisfy your client’s communication needs.
You’ll create websites, billboards, TikTok campaigns…anything to deliver your message. In copywriting, the only limitation is your imagination.
The Copywriting Curriculum at M.AD
When you study copywriting at M.AD School, you’re always learning something new. In the same week you might write a video series for YouTube, strategize a campaign with an art director and present your new product idea, a donut shaped burger, to BurgerKing’s global marketing director. He loves it! Your idea gets produced. Your mom sees it on CNN and Fox News. You go to an award show in France (all expenses paid) and you win a big award. (True story!) Real-world copywriting classes and internships all over the world make finding that first job much easier. You can say, “Yes, I do have experience.”
The entire curriculum is designed by current industry professionals, based on their everyday experience working in a creative setting. It’s a program created to help students develop the real-world skills they’ll need to succeed.
