Advertisements have become part and parcel of our daily lives.  However, putting together an advertisement is not as easy as pointing a video camera and recording.  The need for captivating and creative content to deliver the intended message all in a short amount of time has become a necessity for major brands and services.  Thus, the demand for creative talents in the advertising industry is constantly increasing.

Our programme aims to address this demand for upcoming stars in the advertising industry by training students to excel in this field.  Students pursuing this course will be exposed to theoretical knowledge, practical skills and development of critical and creative practices and strategies in real life applications.
