Students may pursue a degree in one of three curricular tracks: advertising creative, advertising management, and general advertising. Students in all three tracks will learn how to create an effective, strategically sound advertising campaign for a real-world client.
In addition to our exciting and contemporary curriculum, the Advertising program also offers students the chance to engage in out-of-the-classroom experiences to enrich their education. For example, qualified students may elect to participate in the internship program, which provides the opportunity to work in the professional community in the Greater Miami area or other regions. UM Advertising students regularly complete internships with major advertising agencies such as Crispin Porter + Bogusky, Ogilvy & Mather, Leo Burnett, Beber Silverstein, Zubi Advertising, Alma DDB, and Young and Rubicam, among others. In addition, our students have interned at exciting places such as Cosmopolitan, and Glamour magazines, the Rachael Ray Show, MTV, Stella McCartney, and Universal Music Latin Entertainment.
