Watch what M.AD grads have to say
Want to hear the M.AD experience first hand?
“The most fruitful opportunities were from the relationships formed with my teachers. I’m working at Rethink and that’s mostly thanks to instructors at the school, especially Mike Dubrick. He’s my boss now.“
“I was really nervous about starting at M.AD because I didn’t have any background experience or needed skills. But once classes started, I realized everyone brought different skills and unique perspectives. I never felt like I was behind.”
“We were able to dip our feet in all mediums. Being in different cities and agencies, we learned about the different processes. Multiple internships gave us insight into different ways of working.”
