ART DESIGN DIPLOMA SCHOOL
AWARD WINNING DESIGN SCHOOL
Established in 2003, M.A.D. School offers our very own unique MAD formula, a powerful program that integrates marketing, advertising and design. Thanks to our strategic partnership with industry professionals and leaders, our curriculum evolves as market evolves. Change is constant; to stay ahead of our game, we challenge the norms and existing education boundaries. We ask WHY NOT as life is too short for complacency.

WE THINK CREATIVITY WITHOUT THINKING IS NO BETTER THAN A BLANK CANVAS. THE SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST IS AN ADAGE OF THE PAST. RIGHT NOW, IT’S ABOUT THRIVING WITH FORWARD THINKING.
MANY SCHOOLS LAY CLAIM TO TEACHING TECHNICAL SKILLSETS, BUT FEW CAN HONE STRATEGIC THINKING SKILLS. IT’S A WORLD THAT SEPARATES THE CHAFF FROM THE WHEAT; THOSE WHO CAN THINK STRATEGICALLY AND THOSE WHO CAN’T. STRATEGIC THINKING IS WHAT GETS YOU TO THE TOP AND THE WORLD REWARDS THOSE PERCHED AT THE TOP. NOW, WHERE DO YOU WANT TO BE?
EVOLVE WE SHALL. STAY AHEAD OF THE DIGITAL GAME, WE WILL. BUT IT TAKES SO MUCH MORE TO TRULY THRIVE. M.A.D. SCHOOL DOES MORE THAN IMPART TO YOU THE EXPERIENCE, THE TECHNICAL SKILLSET, THE KNOW-HOWS AND THE BLAH BLAH BLAH THAT ALL THE OTHER SCHOOLS CAN. IT TEACHES YOU THE GAME-CHANGING STRATEGIC SKILLS. THINK LIKE NEVER BEFORE. SEE INSIGHTS THAT ARE PRIVY TO A SELECTED FEW. DISCOVER ANOTHER DIMENSION.
ADAPT, AND ADAPT FAST. CREATE TO CHANGE.
CHANGE SO YOU CAN CREATE.
