Well, only QS has a Master in Marketing ranking, and as per them, Cranfield is good for MSc in Strategic Marketing.
All of the mentioned universities are all good, but Cranfield is a sort of specialist university, and it is also a post-graduate-only university. Cranfield is very well respected in the industry and within the Higher Education sector.

You may want to consider their locations in your choice, as some of your lists are city universities, whilst others are more rural (and campus-based). Good luck with whichever one you decide on.

Hi there!

There's a lot of factors that go into this decision, and will be different for everyone.

As already said, Cranfield has a great ranking and reputation. This course specifically is ranked 5th in the UK and 15th in the world by QS World University Rankings: Masters In Marketing 2022.
There is also a Practice Advisory Board made up of high-profile marketing professionals who are involved in the design and development of the course. This keeps it very relevant and ensures that Cranfield grads are really prepared for any future career in marketing.
Cranfield also offers many thesis projects that can be sponsored by industry, allowing you to make contacts in the business before even graduating, getting a taste of what that role and working for that company would be like, and demonstrating you can apply your skills and knowledge in a really impactful way.

As said here, because Cranfield is postgraduate-only, the campus is filled with people who are of many different backgrounds, from new graduates to those with more experience. Many people find it easier to make friends and connect with those of similar ages and backgrounds. The class for this year (21/22) has an age range of 20-40 years. Also, with people from 14 different nationalities just in this one course, there will be many different experiences to share and learn from :smile:

Do you have any specific career goals, or areas of interest within marketing? You can have a look at the details of each module here to see what is covered by that course:

This course is also accredited by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), meaning you can get CIM’s professional marketing qualifications and awards while studying.

Do you have any questions about Cranfield outside of the course? I'd be happy to give my experiences on entertainment and socialising here! Here are some general details:

Best of luck with your decision!
