Which university is best for an MSc in Marketing in 2020, Imperial, LSE, Manchester, or Warwick?
FYI: I am an International student and I'll list my preferences in ranking;

1. Employer Reputation - Possibility of Job after Graduation (Career Fairs/Alumni Network/Career Support for Graduates etc.)
2. Quality of Education
3. Location (Living expenses & Part-Time Jobs)
4. Social Life (Sports/Events)

Happy to join this thread!

I am also exploring these options for a MSc in Marketing. So far I have preferred Manchester, Leeds, York or Bath.

Is someone familiar with their quality in Marketing?

My friend studied a business/management course there, and said there are amazing prospects after graduation as well as a high quality of teaching

And what about anything besides LSE (which has incredibly high fees)?

I’m from the UK and I know that Manchester, Warwick and Bath all have great business schools as well Manchester's MSc Marketing is highly ranked but Warwick and Bath are amongst the best business schools in the UK and Europe

I would say Imperial, their MSc Strategic Marketing has been ranked #2 in the world by Times Higher Education, I think the program layout and curriculum are cutting edge.

https://www.topuniversities.com/univ...marketing/2019

Even though rankings are not the most important, for what you are aiming, Imperial is more practical and career-focused than LSE for example, which is very theoretical, it depends on what approach you like best.

Considering the quality of education, you cannot go wrong with any of the schools you listed, even though I think that Imperial and LSE would be a tier above Warwick, which would be a tier above Manchester (which is a great school nonetheless).

In terms of location, central London will be more expensive than Coventry or Manchester, but you might have more chances to get a part-time job there if you have the time... (these programs are a lot of work)

Regarding social-life/sports, if you like city life I would choose London then Manchester, but if you prefer campus life and sports, then Warwick is the definitely more relevant.

Hope it helps!

Cheers

Hey, I am confused between these 4 colleges as well. I have come down to Imperial and LSE. But I am really confused about which would be better between these two. Let me know what your decision process is like and if you get any useful insights about the course.

Both are good, I went to LSE undergrad and my brother went to Imperial for MSc (not marketing but Finance).
Except if you get into CEMS MIM at LSE (which is their best program by far even though I've heard mixed things about it), I would say that Imperial is a better choice overall, the marketing program is outstanding from what I've heard.
Keep in mind that both are different academic styles so it also depends on what you're looking for
