The Master of Arts in Strategic Design, held in collaboration with the M.AD School of Ideas of Atlanta, provides students with an advanced understanding of design, business and communication theory and their application through a portfolio school model. This model will replicate a creative professional environment allowing graduates to enter the job market with hands-on, professional leadership experience and an exceptional portfolio, as well as an established network of industry contacts, ready to begin their creative careers.
We create strategic design leaders that have a personal drive that goes beyond the classroom. Our students understand that leading isn’t telling people what to do, but identifying opportunities and strategically aligning assets to creatively solve problems.
Ross McClain, Executive Director & Marta Lanier, Associate Director are here to answer all your questions about the program. Start your creative career now by requesting more information!
