M.AD Global Hackathons bring together students from all over the world to solve real-world, cutting edge problems for leading companies (think Netflix, Lego, and KFC). Over the course of just a few days, students are thrust into the creative spotlight…with the opportunity to meet face-to-face with global creative leaders on the line.

The NoM.AD Experience
NoM.AD opportunities allow M.AD students to study and intern in cities around the world.
You can study in a different school location, intern or participate in an Experience Lab where you actually go to school every day inside an agency.

Be Prepared for the World Ahead
There’s a reason our grad placement rate is so fantastically high—it’s because we do everything possible to prepare our students for their next step.
While studying here, you’ll get professional-grade career coaching and portfolio reviews from industry experts. You’ll also build a network of contacts to reveal the most connected industry vet. Finally, we send all our grads hundreds of job leads every year for the rest of their career.
Before M.AD, I was pretty much without a plan. I had just graduated with an English degree and my new father-in-law was wondering what I was going to do with it. I liked design but didn’t know much about it. I had no idea what I wanted to do.
I saw a brand planner opening at one of my favorite agencies...but wasn’t going to apply because I didn't have 3-5 years experience. So I talked to a few of my teachers from the course and Stephanie Grendzinski, who oversees the Bootcamp in Atlanta, and they all advised me to just go for it…
And I got the job!
There’s nothing like this on Earth. At the end of your time, you’ll experience Portfolio Review—the ultimate career matchmaking opportunity. Students go through 10 interviews a day, meeting creative leaders and forging personal connections. Some get offers right away.
