Urban Academy

As part of Metro’s commitment to support new media talent, we host Urban Academy training days throughout the year for young agency graduates and marketing professionals at brands we work with.

The educational and fun days take place in central London and celebrate urban consumerism. Each one is specially curated and provides an excellent insight and networking opportunity for everyone involved. Team challenges are set to push creativity across the media landscape (not just Metro!) and an esteemed judging panel awards prizes for pitches presented. The packed itinerary is full of interactive and informative sessions allowing the delegates to put their experience, energy and creativity to the test. 

Check out the video below of our latest Urban Academy sessions, to find out more.
