Sherie

"What attracted me most about the MAD formula when I joined was the Curriculum. It caters specifically to students who want to move into the creative side of advertising and marketing industry. One thing very different about MAD School is that it has a very hands on approach through projects and there're a lot of relevant videos and case studies shown during classes. I'm confident in my career in the field because I already have a job opening before I graduate, currently I'm doing free-lancing as well."

Callision

"My time in CMA was definitely a precious and rewarding experience.I took up the MAD formula with little design background. The modules allow me to look much deeper into the areas of advertising that are usually the blind-spots of many designers especially on strategy and media planning. With the lecturers' impartation and professional delivery, I was literally having extra creative jobs at night on top of my internship at that time.I will not hesitate to recommend this course any aspiring ad-man or designer who wishes to go beyond creating superficial eye-candy."

Magarita

"Being an expat's partner following my husband here, I was initially looking for short courses to learn computer-based and came across CMA where Adobe programs were integrated into marketing and design course. I'm surprised how much I have learnt in CMA despite owning being a degree holder myself. Everything is hands-on here and I like their creative-thinking approach when it comes to teaching. Groups are generally small and teachers have time to talk to everyone, answer the questions and give advices."

Brendan

"They have a more hands-on approach with teachers who currently work in the industry and they are professional.
I get a sense that they are passionate in what they do, and will be the right people to get me in the advertising industry."
