I have a B.S. in Business and Management and am planning to go back to school to either earn a Masters in Communications/Advertising or attend a portfolio school. I would like to be a copywriter with experience in art direction.
These are the schools I am applying to. If anybody has any thoughts or words of wisdom about them, please share.
It would be nice to have a Masters Degree. However, I know that a porfolio, who you know, and the quality of your work is what lands jobs, so a portfolio school is not a bad idea.
Miami Ad School (either the Portfolio Program or the Creative Masters Program in conjunction with Florida International University)
Boston University (Ad Lab)
Syracuse University (S.I. Newhouse School)
I looking for thoughts on Creative Circus vs. Miami Ad School vs. Boston University
Creative Circus has a good reputation but offers no Degree. Miami Ad School has a fairly good reputation as well, but offers a Degree at the sacrifice of less focus on a portfolio. Boston University is a very well-known university that offers a traditional degree program with a creative track.
So, it's hard to make a decision.
