No Day is the Same

Not every job requires cramming yourself into a windowless cubicle for eight hours a day. When you work in advertising, there are no cubicle walls, no mind-numbing projects, and definitely no boring conversations with co-workers. Instead, you get to spend your days working alongside creative people to dream up the kinds of out-of-the-box ideas that help us see the world a little differently. Best of all, you get paid for it.

“Advertising is a business that never gets boring, lets you use your brain to solve problems and get paid to come up with ideas. Its the best job in the world.”

Stephen Jurisic

M.AD Toronto has shifted to an online learning environment in response to Covid 19 and will continue to offer classes in our successful online format. This will provide accessibility to students who wish to continue social distancing or are unable to travel yet. Please read about our Online Learning Environment if you wish to learn more, and you can also take a Virtual School Tour.

For our non full time students, we will be offering a new selection of individual classes exclusively online.

For any digital native that’s comfortable with online collaboration, I think it’s a no-brainer that online learning will naturally feel like a second home
