The History of Miami Ad School

Founded in 1993, Miami Ad School has grown to a network of 16 advertising schools in 10 different countries. Through the school’s partnerships with dozens of agencies and companies, students have the opportunity to intern and get real-world experience while they are still in school. Our creative and practical approach to training has made our students the most awarded on the planet.This global network of schools is hardly a mom & pop operation, but there is a Mom & Dad of Miami Ad School. Ron & Pippa Seichrist gave birth to this innovative concept in 1993 and are still very involved in the constant evolution of the school. We partner with the industry to create the most unique portfolio program possible that reflects the latest needs of global advertising agencies and brands. The atmosphere is a little kooky, but when you walk into a Miami Ad School anywhere in the world, you'll feel at home. You’ll be surrounded by friendly people gathered in small groups brainstorming ideas or concepting over a game of ping pong. Chances are you’ll also be met by a happy wagging dog. As a student, you enter a very large, close family and graduate over prepared with a great portfolio and global, real-world experience.
