About The Advertising Club of New York

Originally known as the Sphinx Club, the Advertising Club began in 1896 as a group of eight businessmen who met to discuss the advertising profession.  In 1906, the Ad Club launched a series of talks at NYU, which became the first formal teaching about advertising in academia.  Today, the Ad Club is a nonprofit organization for marketing and advertising professionals in the communications field.  It sponsors educational activities and hosts regular luncheons and symposiums.  The club also holds the annual ANDY Awards to recognize contributions to advertising worldwide.

The Ad Club program places interns in various participating advertising agencies, marketing and publishing companies in New York City.  Though they conduct their day-to-day work at their assigned agency, interns meet weekly at the Ad Club for seminars and are paired with Ad Club members who act as mentors.


Open to college junior and seniors.
