For Miami Ad School Sri Lanka, the real world becomes the classroom with a collaboration of fresh perspectives and global ideologies that influence the future of design, digital marketing, strategic thinking and innovation.

Miami Ad School cultivates unconventional minds and celebrates audacious creativity in all its forms: from self-identified creatives and yet-to-identify creatives to unfulfilled professionals who need to revive their passion or fall in love for the first time with bold ideas that breathe new life to everyday moments.

Miami Ad School Sri Lanka and Maldives President and Dean Kandeban Balendran shared his vision behind partnering with the best creative school in the world.

“Sri Lanka has epic creative potential. We want students and professionals here to have an opportunity that allows them to not just explore their passion and be inspired, but also to find a foundation to build their creative careers on and a bridge that connects them to the world. A school that not only educates you but also celebrates you. We teach students and professionals to make creativity their superpower – using it to build brands, start new ventures, and champion beliefs that are important for them. Miami Ad School is a partnership between education and industry. We are very excited to invite the creative thinkers of Sri Lanka to come join a global community of designers, writers, strategists and innovators to take the power of our island’s creativity to the world.”

“Our Institutional Advisory Committee comprises the Miami Ad School’s Board of Directors – a global team of leading creatives, innovators and strategists ensuring that creative bravery and innovation is at the heart of everything we do,” Balendran added.

Miami Ad School Co-Founder Pippa Seichrist addressing the launch in Sri Lanka said: “We are very excited to welcome Sri Lanka and Maldives to the Miami Ad School network that is transforming creative education with our 16 campuses worldwide. Our approach is not a cookie-cutter program that limits students but a chance for the students to create a program that is ideal for their unique talents, and ambitions. It’s a great joy to be part of Sri Lanka’s creative future.”
