Our mission is take radical dreamers and turn them into advertising powerhouses. By working directly with Toronto’s top agencies and brands, we train the next generation to find creative solutions to the business problems that keep you up at night.

From Miami to Toronto

Back in 1993 — while everyone else was out watching Mrs. Doubtfire and listening to the Bodyguard soundtrack — Ron & Pippa Seichrist founded the first Miami Ad School. Today it has become an international brand and earned the title of world’s most awarded ad school.

As the first Canadian campus, Miami Ad School Toronto has been churning out the next Cannes winners (just wait) since 2016.





Not your Average School

In place of exams, our students complete real projects that they can add to their portfolio. And rather than waiting four years to get a job, our students work while they study. Basically, we think outside the box so that our students will do the same.

Our Instructors

At Miami Ad School Toronto, all our instructors are currently working in the industry. We select the best and brightest from Toronto’s top agencies to mentor our students in everything from Pop Culture Engineering to Social Media Strategy. See all the instructors who have walked through our doors here.

Who we Work With


The unimaginative need not apply. As long as you’re a creative thinker with a kickass work ethic, you’ll fit right in.

Our Grads

We hate to brag, but we think it’s worth mentioning that Miami Ad School is the most awarded ad school in the world — more than 5,000, but who’s counting?

Check out a few of the awards that our own Toronto students have picked up (before they even graduated):
