MSc in marketing


My dream college for postgraduate studies is kings college London . However , when I got offer for MSc international marketing many people told me that it’s business school is not that great and you should think again .

I really want to know it is worth it to do marketing from kings or I should go to trinity college Dublin , Durham university or cranfield university as I have also got offers from these universities.

I'm an active alumnus of KCL's business school. You should certainly attend Cranfield or Trinity. https://www.topuniversities.com/university-rankings/business-masters-rankings/marketing/2020

King's business school is very new, compared to most other UK schools. Although the university itself has great prestige, it's hard to recommend a degree from such a new faculty.

... unless of course you just want your CV to say 'KCL.'

But you'll find more value elsewhere.

I'd also be careful about a course in 'international marketing'. 90+% of UK MSc marketing students are foreign so all programmes have to have an international view.

Relevance to what? Cranfield is a more strategic  degree while Edinburgh has more of a focus on analytics. Personally I would pick Cranfield for its four term model and better careers services.

I have offers from the following :

Cranfield - Msc Strategic Marketing
SKEMA - Msc International Marketing & Business Development
Strathclyde - Msc Marketing
EXETER - Msc Marketing

As of now I'm deciding between SKEMA and Cranfield (SKEMA because of its extremely practical approach, although I've heard from a few students in France that having a professional competency in the language is quite important for jobs there, especially now due to Covid that the opportunities have shrunk) Ideally I would want to work a year in the country where I study, so SKEMA is a bit less likely as my choice due to the language barrier. Looking for suggestions as to which college could be a better choice amongst all.

Cranfield is certainly the best of these if you want to work in Europe and have English as your main European language. UCD, Warwick and Lancaster might also be worth looking at.

Hi, I have an Offer from Cranfield School of Management (MSc Strategic Marketing). I have also applied to Edinburgh University for MSc - Marketing &amp; Business Analytics.
Between the two, which should be a better option, considering:-
- Job prospects in the UK market
- Curriculum relevancy
I have 9 years of experience in Traditional Marketing and look forward to specializing further with a second master's degree.
Profile: FT MBA - General Management and Engineering (From India) followed by 9 years of Marketing experience.

I honestly don't know how any of these degrees would add value to your current profile. 

At least compare the post-degree salary stats with what you're currently making. My sense is that somebody with 9 years of work experience would be better off with an MBA.

Hi , 

I have received offers from both Cranfield University (Msc Strategic Marketing) and University College Dublin (Msc Marketing). Please advise which course would be a better fit based on the following parameters:
1. employment after graduation/ international mobility (in UK/ Ireland/ Singapore) 
2. Course Structure and immersion programs 
3. Alumni Network 
4. Research faculty to eventually pursue a PHD.



Thanks in advance!

1. Very hard to say: you should ask the schools. It's a crazy time.
2. Cranfield is the clear winner: a good balance of B2B and B2C; CIM accreditation and optional MRS certificates; a deep research thesis. 
3. Very different. Smurfit is the leading school in Ireland. Cranfield is a graduate-only business school. I would assume that Cranfield has the more effective, active network. 
4. Cranfield has a big edge: the major thesis, and the one to one supervision from a faculty member, puts you in a strong position to enter a PhD. Cranfield perhaps has more commercial funding. But it's also down to the topic. Cranfield's excellent for business markets, since MBAs and MScs tend to work in B2B rather than B2C: behavioural marketing, technology marketing, sales management and especially all things B2C. UCD is a bigger school because of the undergraduate teaching headcount. I think it would be stronger for things that interest undergrads: consumer behaviour (branding, bottom-of-the-pyramid, charity, healthcare, marketing to children, innovation, neuroscience) and agribusiness.

Hi, I have offers from Queen Mary for MSc in Marketing and Cranfield for MSc in Strategic marketing. I am an international student and would love to get some work experience in the UK after studying. Which one should I choose? I have no prior experience in the field.
