The Master of Marketing is a great way to become well-acquainted with recent marketing theory for use in a practical context. These courses generally take two years to complete if conducted full time, or up to four years if part time. The new perspective on customer relationships, global markets and consumer behaviour will grant graduates the ability to pursue high level marketing positions.
Graduates from Master of Marketing courses like those offered by Griffith University ensure students are well prepared for the positions listed here. An advertising account executive, for instance, is better prepared for their role given knowledge of recent marketing theory and its applicability to modern systems of commerce. A logistics manager can better manage vast distribution networks through the knowledge acquired during a Master of Marketing.
Master level marketing students have access to dedicated scholarship opportunities. The Supple Digital Marketing Scholarship is an example of this, allowing eligible marketing students to receive partial funding for their studies. Ento’s Happier Workplace Scholarship is also available for marketing students, providing a similar level of funding. Marketing students also have access to a plethora of general funding options such as the Women in Leadership Excellence Scholarship and similar opportunities granted to students of different backgrounds and ethnicities.
Master of Marketing courses often require a credit GPA (65% or higher) in any given bachelor degree to enter. Courses offered by the University of Sydney reflect this requirement, but also demand others. To enter this program and those of other universities, it is often a requirement to prove applicants have undergone three years of work experience, a statement of motivation as to why they want to enrol and then pass an interview. Students should therefore consider a specific reason for undergoing one of these courses before applying.
