Paul Manz

Paul loves watching people, figuring out what makes them tick and using marketing and design to improve their lives. While he holds multiple college degrees, he still maintains he learned the most about life during his 13 years at the University of Science, Music and Culture including life-changing study abroad experiences in Norway, Kuwait and Iraq.

After completing the Master's in Branding program in 2014, Paul accepted a position as Director of Strategy for allwebcafe, a boutique digital agency in Philadelphia. There he relaunched the agency's strategy and analysis offering before moving on to the Strategy and Analysis department at Digitas Health Lifebrands, a Publicis Healthcare Communications Group agency.

When he's not working, you'll find him at his local CrossFit box working out in a vain attempt to keep up with his two young sons or gardening and cooking with his wife.

The curriculum for The Masters in Branding Program allows students to create frameworks to guide brand, design and business development, critically evaluate brand, business, marketing and design strategies and Master the intellectual link between leadership and creativity. Learn more...
