MSc Marketing help: KCL or University of Glasgow?


I am planning to do a master's degree in marketing (online). Which university would be the better choice: KCL or the University of Glasgow?

They are similar reputation-wise (KCL probably slightly more popular internationally), but Glasgow's Adam Smith Business School is triple accredited.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Where are you based and what are you trying to accomplish? I struggle to think that these are better than a CIM qualification.

I am currently working as a marketing assistant in Switzerland, and would like to do an online master's degree (part-time). Could you please give me your opinion about these two universities? 

Is it a bad idea to pursue a master's degree in marketing? I have heard many good things about KCL and Glasgow. Adam Smith Business School is, for example, triple accredited - would that be worse than CIM qualification?

Professionally, the Chartered Marketer qualification could be a better option. Take a look at the CIM PgDip https://www.cim.co.uk/qualifications/postgraduate-diploma-in-professional-marketing/?gclsrc=aw.ds&gclid=Cj0KCQjwg_iTBhDrARIsAD3Ib5i01iShkwmzCCO4hv98jMxVgat2g9qxC14jhVCcNZpYMZbAX6MVdVkaAoFgEALw_wcB

Academically,  there is nothing wrong with either school. Think about whether your focus is more B2B or B2C and then decide accordingly.

Thank you for your response! Will look at the CIM PgDip. I know that I would like to work in marketing.

Still, I would really appreciate it if you could give me your opinion regarding the two universities. Which university would you choose for marketing?
