Since being founded in 1976, SAE has developed to become the largest educational institution focused on creative media

The international creative school

SAE, a school with a mission to train future professionals for the creative and media industries.

Nothing is more important than believing in yourself and following your passion. I studied at SAE, where I learned that if I really like something, I can be very good at it and succeed in it. The best thing about my job is being able to share this experience with future generations and helping them to transform their passion into a profession. It is always a moving experience for me to meet graduates and talk with them about their personal achievements with a gleam in their eyes.

Christian Mueller — Managing Director, SAE G/S/A
