Which would you say carries the strongest reputation and attracts the most recruiters for that industry?
Durham vs Leeds vs Birmingham Watch

1) As above - do not assume that 'A Masters degree' is anything like a job clincher, since employers value hard experience over a piece of paper any day. Masters degrees are academic qualifications - not a practical 'how to do a job' training. Just because a Uni markets a degree as vital to the ongoing employment of graduates doesnt mean its true!
2) If you decide to do a Masters degree anywhere (all three Unis are 'good' Unis so reputation isnt an issue here), then look at the course content(s) critically. Does it interest you? Which optional units would you choose, and why? Where are you likely to be able to write a stonker research dissertation on a subject that really interests you?

If you are really concerned about recruiters and employment, you can contact programme manager and ask for actionable metrics such as:
What marketing firms come to campus for presentation or hiring, any of yr target firms among them
Career path of recent graduates, ask for ambassadors you can contact or use linkedin to find out
Fit is vital, explore your goals and interests and look at course content or learning methods
