    Hi every one

    I am an international student
    Junior at a local university in my country
    studding Bachelor of Business and Economics, major in Marketing
    i expect to graduate in June 2011
    i am willing to apply for graduate degree in Marketing in 2011/2012
    when is best time to apply?

    i checked some of the unis websites
    most of them requires a 2:1 upper second-class degree
    what dose that mean? what the equivalent in US GPA out of 4 ?

    what do you all think about these unis and programs?
    are they really hard to get into?

    King's College London - International Marketing MSc
    University of Bath - MSc in Marketing
    University of Edinburgh - Marketing
    University of Manchester - Marketing MSc
    University of Leeds - MSc International Marketing Management
    Aston University - MSc Marketing Management
    University of Exeter - MSc Marketing
    Lancaster University - Advanced Marketing Management MSc
    Cardiff University - MSc Strategic Marketing
    University of Glasgow - Strategic Marketing
    University of Southampton - MSc Marketing Management
    University of Nottingham - MSc Marketing
    University of Strathclyde - Masters in International Marketing

    Im so confused :eek3:

    a 2:1 and above is about 3.5 gpa.

    do be careful, some of the msc marketing courses are for people who did not take business/management/marketing courses in their first degrees. so you have to select the right ones to apply.

    i think the university of warwick's msc in marketing is also worth looking into.

    out of the lot you have picked, go for those that rank according to what you think is for you, but do aim high. sd there aren't many rankings for msc marketing courses per say, you can identify the schools with a good business/mgt school through the mba/msc mgt rankings on ft.com etc.

    most unis open for applications by oct or nov... it is best to apply before jan if you're anxious, as courses at top schools are very competitive and places fill up quickly.

    out of the lot you have listed, manchester has a good int'l reputation. king's just started their mgt/mktg courses a few years ago. they are a powrhouse for law/dentistry etc, but not business/mgt.

    the rest are okay, but not super elite. the better ones are perhaps lancaster; edinburgh; bath? i am not very familiar with the rest as i don't live in the uk. check with local brit students.

    warwick's .. requires 8 in IELTS .. that kinda hard to get :s

    Hello ,

    I have applied for Masters In Marketing and Creativity. My interview and test is on 30th on this month.

    Does anybody has any idea about what is going to be on the test and interview and how to prepare for it.

    Also what is the credibility of ESCP - London. Do the companies recognize ESCP name. Do they prefer ESCP grads?

    I have honors degree in Electrical engineering and have 3 years of Sales and Marketing experience. I cant do MBA because of finance problem. And LBS / LSE kinda schools dont have any Masters in marketing program for a candidate of my experience.

    I never heard anything from anyone regarding the ESCP Marketing program and its future prospects.

    Your response is highly appreciated.

    Kind Regards

    It holds zero weight in UK. It's a good school in France though. If you want to work in UK then apply to the british uni's like kings/manchester/nottingham/warwick.

    Hello Guys,

    This is a really interesting thread for me!
    What do you think about the MA in Marketing at London Metropolitan University? I liked the course content but the university is ranked really low. Do you think it's worth going there?

    I am looking for part-time study options and most of the good univerities don't offer part time studies What do you think about London Met? Do companies prefer grads from there?

    Thank you!

    I'm currently doing an Msc in International Marketing at University of Strathclyde and the course is amazing. Albeit I'm the only American, which I prefer there is about 20 different nationalities in the program so you get a true international exposure. Also, typically if you look each university website you will see a GPA equivalent for the USA. Usually minimum 3.0, but others will require higher. Good luck

    well, both of them are good universities and the MSc programs look good.
    i'd personally pick edinburgh, but really it's up to you. look at the modules content and some other things like the bibliography and the assessment strategy for example.
    besides, take into account also other aspects which are not directly connected to the MSc program, for example the city you are going to live in, the facilities of the university, stuff like that

    Thank you. The course module at MBS is kinda more interesting. I'm not sure if I'm mistaken but I heard that MBS is better at business while Edinburgh is better at Scientific fields. I have read through many threads and many people said that Ediburgh is a better place to live. Personally, I never visited both. I have been to London and Kent only. As an international student, I'm weighting between these two universities as to their reputation in a global market. Anyhow, are you currently attend MSc. Marketing at either university?

    Manchester Business School is all about reputation, but lately going down in the rankings. What about lancaster or warwick? I attended MBS few years ago and was not impressed at all.

    Hi there!

    I've received two offers and don't know which one to choose...

    1) University of Warwick: MSc Marketing & Strategy
    2) University of Glasgow: MSc Strategic Marketing

    Are those two schools comparable? I hear that Warwick's pretty good. No idea about Glasgow though... And since I don't live in the country it's kinda hard to find out their reputation across the UK (and possibly Europe).

    I've applied for those two programmes as they were the closest match to what I want to study.

    Thank you for any help!

    Definitely WBS!

    It is very difficult to get in and need IELST of 8!!! Geez

    Check out Imperial College - Strategic marketing. It's a new course and 2011 is the first yr but the course module is pretty interesting
