AWARDS WON BY OUR
Being industry players, active in their respective fields, our lecturers stay abreast with their fast-evolving industries and impart their most up-to-date knowledge to students. Featuring an array of award winners, from recipients of internationally acclaimed creative awards to honorable media accolades, our lecturers are well- versed in the do’s and don’ts in winning awards, and use only such lofty standards as benchmarks for their teaching.
MadGlobal subscribes to that, connecting us to the matrix of the globalized world. It’s an independent entity armed with an altruistic vision of exposing students around the world to all things creative, sans geographical boundaries.
From competitions and advertising awards such as Adfest in Thailand and Adstars Korea to study trips in New York & Bali; we have the students’ expansion of their creative minds at heart.
At Awards Lab, everyone’s a winner! Even without bagging an award. It’s a boiler room where students are subject to the rigours of an agency environment. And the demands of producing award-winning work.
Awards or not, walk away with a winning portfolio.
Do you believe in an education that focuses on how good you are at memorising? We don't.
That is why all our modules are projects based, allowing you to train on your newly acquired skills while building a strong portfolio for yourself.
Doing what you enjoy to pass your modules; if that sounds good to you, you are the right fit for our school.
