- Change the game and create campaigns that are social first and everything else second – the industry is changing and you won’t be left behind.
- You are communicator and marketer, strategist and researcher – use the right tools to base your social practices on fact not assumption.
- Beginning the convo is half the battle – show loyal consumers, influencers and advocates some love – reward and retain your most valuable advertisers.
- Connect on a personal level and reap the rewards of social media’s effect on the consumer opinion and brand impression.
- Distribution can be effective but if you place your trust in the wrong people – major complications may ensue. Develop strategies to deliver brand message safely.

- The future is now and clients are demanding more innovative, mind-altering and revolutionary/ visionary ideas that will launch the business to lasting success.

Miami Ad School (MAS) is hands on and based on real-world experience. Almost any person will tell you that's what you need to get a job as a UX designer in Toronto's tech industry. The school has international connections outside of Toronto, too, which means you get opportunities to intern globally. Great school, incredible teachers, amazing network. You won't regret it.

I'm an Art Director working in advertising and wanted to expand my knowledge on best practices in UX. I did learn a lot in the short time I was attending MAS classes and was glad I jumped on the opportunity to attend. The bootcamp was very intense while working a full time job in advertising, and asked a lot from students who had zero experience with UX design, but it pushed us to learn fast and absorb as much information as we could have. The program has improved my strategic thinking on digital platforms and informed me on best practices in UX design.
What kind of educational background do I need?
Our Bootcamp programs cater to students from a wide variety of backgrounds. However, these programs require a degree or diploma in advertising, marketing, business, or a related field, along with a minimum of one year of work experience.
Can my employer sponsor me as a Bootcamp student?
Yes! With the Canada Ontario Job Grant, your employer can be reimbursed 67-85% the cost of tuition. This mean that your employer can send you to upgrade your skills for as little as $975.
Are Bootcamps available online?
Our Bootcamps are only available in-person so that you can get your hands dirty and work on real world projects. Of course, we know that your schedule is already packed, which is why our Bootcamps run from 6PM to 9PM on weeknights, giving you the opportunity to learn something new, without sacrificing your 9 to 5.
What is a Live Client?
A Live Client is a top agency or brand (past clients include Google, Koodo, Cirque du Soleil and Smoke’s Poutine) that will present you with a creative brief. You will then have an opportunity to work directly with the client and pitch your very own campaign idea.
