MSc Marketing


Ethan

Hi Mr Duncan,

I'm interested in studying a Masters in Marketing in the UK. I've completed my undergrad in Business Administration with a Major in Marketing Management in India. I've got two years of experience in Digital Marketing as well.

My goal is to secure a job post completion of my masters in the UK. A job which focuses on marketing strategy and research.

Which universities would you recommend to apply to? Currently, I've received offers from Exeter, Sheffield, York to name a few. As well as Brunel, Manchester Met, Kingston etc. From what I understand in your comments on different posts, look at the FT rankings for MiM and the overall school ranking to get a better idea. That being said, Exeter has constantly ranked for the past 3 years. (Towards the Bottom Half) and the MiM course is ranked as well. Although on the QS ranking for MSc Marketing, the course does not rank at all but Sheffield does in 33rd Place. So I'm a bit confused and would like your help. 

Does it matter to employers whether you graduated from a Russell Group University? As people emphasize the importance of studying at one to stand out from the crowd.

Also, could you guide me on the importance of a "triple crown" school? Is it something one should focus on whilst selecting a school? 

Would a MSc Marketing suit my career better or a MiM inorder to secure a job in the UK?

Thanks

You have too many questions to answer quickly. If you want to find work in the UK, take a top MiM rather than an MSc in marketing. Quality of the business school matters more than the quality of the patent university, even if it is in the Russell Group. Rankings show that, as do accrediations: Why international accreditation matters http://www.find-mba.com/board/41224

Well in that case, Exeter seems to be a good option based that it is ranked in the FT and has a Triple Crown accreditation. Sheffield and Manchester Met have a triple accreditation for it's business schools but aren't ranked in the FT.
Which schools would you recommend for a Msc in Marketing though?
