Really confused ! MSc in Marketing at Cranfield or Reading ?? Watch
Advice on studying business at university
Any areas within marketing you are interested in? Compare it with concentration at each MSc programme. What are your educational and professional goals, background, home or overseas student?
Hi! I hope that during the MSc I will find areas that are of interest to my, because I have a scientific background so I don't really have a focus now.I am an EU student and I would like to be a professional on Marketing. I just want some advice on choosing between those 2 universities, they have similar program..
Cranfield is recognised as the better B-School (See FT, economist, Forbes rankings). Reading is nowhere and not even in the same bracket! I think you may have mixed things up because you are not from the UK and did not study management sciences. Cranfield MSc Marketing competes with Manchester, City U and maybe even Warwick.
Cranfield has innovative multi-learning platform (lecture, case, group based projects, real life consulting assignment and experimental learning). Big on General management and professional development (teamwork, leadership), putting theory into practice. Cranfield has also better facilities & career support compared to Reading.
Cranfield SOM > Reading
Ideally a programme should be selected based on the course content. Like TCannon mentioned, Cranfield has one of the best career services. Most companies want to watch out for their graduates. Probably because Cranfield does not have undergraduate courses, the university may not be discussed as much as any other top university. But the university clearly provides some of the best lectures, great post study advantage, & much more.
