“My experience at BPG as a graphic designer started 2 years after university. I had recently moved back to the Middle East and although I had experienced working in ad agencies in the USA, the program and BPG helped to acclimate and adjust to a new market in MENA. The program summarizes the world of advertising and marketing into an amazing crash course and it gives you opportunities to work with world renowned clients to practice your craft. Besides the work, the diverse working atmosphere nurtures you and pushes you to explore and hone your skills. As a designer, I’d recommend this program to anyone wanting to start their career in a creative field.”

The BPG NXT program helped me learn from not only the leadership team at BPG but also from MarCom leaders in the region. This program gave me a holistic view of the industry, equipping me with the knowledge which still helps me in my role as a Senior Account Executive.  It’s one of a kind in the region and changed my career trajectory.”

Luma Kudsiova


“The program is more than just an internship. It’s a deep dive into the ins and outs of an agency, giving you a wholesome understanding of every department you’re going to be interacting with. Joining the program in 2019 as a new Master’s graduate allowed me to experience the breadth and depth of agency operations and departments – from account management to strategy, all the way to finance and beyond. This was especially useful when I found my place in BPG’s creative team as a Creative Copywriter. Overall, the BPG NXT program is a great opportunity for recent graduates to learn, grow and develop their skills – both personally and professionally.”
