The MBA programmes which admit students with no work experience are very weak, so take an MS instead. Syracuse and Fordham are great. Take a look at the media programmes at Brooklyn and Temple as well as well.

I think the careers support will be better at the larger universities. The difference between and MS and an MA is very small.

Well, there are two sorts of MBA in the US, and MS degrees come between them.
- Reputable universities require that MBA candidates have years of work experience: their graduates have the best career options.
- Then come other masters degrees at reputable schools, they have the second best - but they are the best option open to you now.
- In last place come MBA programmes which do not require work experience. They are typically run by schools which are not well respected, and have higher costs than MS programmes, so they offer a worse RoI.

The New School will give you a great education, but I think that the bigger universities will have much better careers support.

No, I think the one year programmes are well designed. However if you need an internship then look carefully at what the school helps with.

Well, an MBA will not help you with those things. I think you will need to ask people in your own country and industry to get ideas for progression. This website is about MBAs.

If you want to work in the media, don't take a PhD. A PhD trains professors.

What sort of role would you like to have? On the basis of your post, I think a masters in journalism might be best.

Yes if your professional skills are already developed, the PhD route is the right one. You may need to start through a research masters, like an MPhil or MRes.
