Miami Ad School has announced that Ogilvy’s Alex Watts (head of social) and Jennifer Ngai (lead social strategist), will lead its Social Media Boot Camp in the coming spring term.

The 10-week boot camp is an intensive program where students work on live briefs to create fully-executed social media campaigns, and will run from Monday 2 October to Friday 8 December 2017.

Its five weekly classes are taught after hours, from 6pm to 9pm on Mondays to Fridays, and costs $5,000.

The boot camp offers one-on-one expert feedback and allows each student to build a professional portfolio. It is suitable for planners, creatives, account managers and brand managers.

Watts said he was really excited to be running the Social Media Boot Camp.

“We’ll be focusing on developing a broad set of social skills, preparing students for a role in the real world of agencies and beyond,” he said.

The announcement comes after Maud’s Sunny Hwang and DDB’s Damian Martinez were announced as the headliners for Miami Ad School’s Account Planning Boot Camp
