Advertising Boot Camp



We’re looking for 12 of the world’s biggest masochists. People who love pain and are willing to crawl through a snake pit naked just to get what they want. This program is not for the faint of heart. Or faint of brain. Or for the kind of people who faint at the sight of blood. This is a rigorous, two-week ordeal designed to filter out the best of the best. And teach you stuff, of course.


//Have a sense of humor
//Love people
//Work harder
//Want to conquer the world
//Are annoyingly competitive
//Take showers

Students are given agency roles and left stranded in the office with nothing but jewel-toned Post-it Notes and their intellect to survive. The thing is, we will be watching, challenging, and all-around manipulating the process the entire way.

You are Katniss Everdeen. We are The Capitol.

During the program, classes are taught by agency experts from each department establishing the foundational elements of each discipline. You will be responsible for research, strategy and campaign development from beginning to end. The project culminates with a presentation to top innovators and business leaders.

Let the games begin.

Advertising Boot Camp starts Tuesday, January 3, 2017 and ends Friday, January 13, 2017. During camp, lab hours are open from 8:00am – 5:00pm at the agency to enable students to work with their team. Additionally, o¬ffice hours with agency experts will be available for project input.

To apply, send an introduction and your résumé to Submissions will be accepted October 1st through December 9th. Interviews will be conducted following résumé submission. All candidates will be notified of their acceptance status on or before December 16th. With a class limit of 12, we encourage students to apply as soon as possible. Please note that MW+C is not accredited and students will not receive college credit for completing this program. What you will receive is real world experience, a portfolio piece, access to industry experts, and introductory classes to the fast-moving world of marketing and advertising. Oh, and it can’t hurt your chances for a full-blown internship either.

Class Size Limit: 12
Dates: January 3rd, 2017 – January 13th, 2017
Lab Hours: Mon-Fri 8:00am – 5:00pm
Cost: $400

//Your email looks like it was written by a chimp.
//Your résumé looks like it was written by a chimp.
//You aren’t hungry for life. Show us you want this.
//You dress like a hobo for the interview.
//You’re flaky.

This is the real deal. Hardcore overachievers only please.
