Best Colleges for Advertising

AMC’s classic drama Mad Men glorified the advertising scene in 1950’s and 60’s Manhattan. The field may look different in the 2010’s and 20’s with the fall of traditional media and the takeover of smart phones, the internet and on-demand programming, but this profession is anything but on the decline. The Bureau of Labor Statistics expects 10% job growth in the advertising sector through 2026 and the profession remains a rare space where corporate and creative interests can coexist symbiotically. Be prepared to learn everything from psychology to copyediting, graphic design, and marketing. Our list of Best Colleges for Advertising predominately features public universities which offer affordable and accessible degree programs while also allowing entry into the highest levels of this often high-paying and exciting career.
