The History of AAA School of Advertising

Admired and recognised worldwide, we are the only tertiary institution created by and for the advertising profession. Established in 1990 by the AAA (Association of Advertising Agencies), now known as the Association for Communication and Advertising (ACA), we are the official higher education institution for the South African advertising industry. The strong connection with the ACA means have both the support of its members and access to a wealth of experts from the advertising profession. In addition, lecturers are respected academics and industry professionals who deliver the most up-to-date, relevant tuition. These are just some of the reasons our students receive employment offers even before they graduate, or while serving their mandatory internships.

Additionally, our approach to teaching advertising and marketing communication is totally integrated and incorporates the challenges of new technology and new media (e.g., digital and mobile media). Our students are given real campaigns to work on, integrating both theory and practice.

Life in AAA School of Advertising

In a country where over 60% of youth live in poverty, the probability for untapped brilliance to go undiscovered is a reality. This is why we continually endeavour to identify, recruit and educate talented individuals from previously disadvantaged groups.
