A Design School That Produces Award-Winning Students

First to combine design, advertising media & marketing into one programme

Named by Channel NewsAsia as the first to embrace New Education, ahead of schools like NTU-ADM, SUTD, etc., by integrating media, design & advertising into one program, we have been partnering with experienced practitioners from the creative & ad industry to bring our students the best learning experience that allows them to shine the moment they graduate from the program.


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. 


"So to all my young students, matured graduates or prospective students, enjoy every moment of life. Everybody is creative, and this is a belief I hold strongly."

Professional Diploma in Advertising & Design

Yearning for a trailblazing career as a creative director or owner of your design or advertising agency?


This comprehensive 24-month programme will arm you the strategic thinking and analytical skills to thrive in the advertising and design industry.



You have a keen eye for aesthetics. Designs inspire you. You’re inspired to design.


You will be taught to conceptualise for design applications such as editorial, posters and packaging while having interactions, consultations, hands-on assignments as well as presentations that will fully prepare you for the design world.



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 all over world to all things creative, sans geographical boundaries.


From overseas trips to advertising awards competition such as Adfest in Thailand and Adstars Korea; to global learning trips to 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 agency environment. And the demands of producing award-winning work.


Awards or not, walk away with a winning portfolio.
