Category: Career resources, Internships

MAIP allows students to work at prestigious advertising agencies on various accounts, interact with advertising professionals on a day-to-day basis, and gain valuable professional credentials.

By combining real-world work experience, training and development, and networking opportunities within the industry, MAIP participants gain a valuable professional credential to better position themselves in the marketplace. Simultaneously, the program offers advertising agencies the opportunity to access top talent and strengthens the 4A’s efforts to enhance the workforce diversity of our industry.

In addition to a full-time paid internship, MAIP fellows participate in a series of agency sponsored professional development workshops and seminars, which provide a deeper dive into the various advertising and media disciplines. The workshops also grant fellows the opportunity to learn more about the host agency’s culture through networking with agency professionals post-workshop and agency tours. MAIP fellows residing in the larger markets will attend these workshops. Those residing in smaller markets will have the opportunity to participate in alternative networking events orchestrated by MAIP alumni and agency partners

Students selected for the annual 22 week fellowship program (12 weeks of virtual online training and a 10 week agency internship experience) will hone their skills in one of the following advertising disciplines:

  • Account Management
  • Art Direction
  • Community Management
  • Copywriting
