Marketing Schools...less then 3 yr work ex.. [#permalink] New post 15 Mar 2007, 05:26
Elders, Everyone

I am planning for a marketing degree. Can you please suggest me some good marketing schools, States or otherwise.....

What are the scores i or for that matter anyone who is planning to go for marketing should look for..... keeping following things in mind
1. Nice comfortable Scholarship :?
2. Decent School with a well paying/hard working job with decent organisations
3. Well practiced interships.. setting you up well for a good job.
4. Score required for each to guarantee the above 3 8-)

Flow in your suggestions for schools in and out of States which guarantee a career in the industry.

No school guarantees a career in any industry. That is up to you, my friend.

I would recommend searching for schools at http://www.review.com and www. businessweek.com. You'll find a lot of info that will help you narrow down a list of schools, and some that ought to help you have a more realistic understanding of b-school than you seem to at the moment. You've really got to do your own homework so you know what to expect.

Crazy horse.... that is an extremely subjective opinion... school is as much part of how eductation is imparted to you as well as an important yardstick of your being a virtuoso in the industry....I dont agree whole heartedly with what you've said....Anyhow

Thanks for that....

I agree ..but life experience counts.. the experience of people with their application process...why they opted for that university....surely i will configure my selection according to my profile and want..but it is nice to hear from the people itself...you may find tonnes at various sites...but here with personal interaction that little piece of information can be the decider. 8-)

...that was the whole point of me putting up this post! :?

No, it's not subjective to say it doesn't guarantee a career. That's the word I am specifically referring to, "guarantee". An MBA doesn't guarantee anything. It provides opportunities for you that you *may* not otherwise have, but it doesn't guarantee a career at all. I have several friends with MBAs, and one who didn't really have great experience or particularly great job skills (other than the ability to schmooze) found himself working at a wine store for $7 an hour despite his MBA when the dot com craze crashed.

You should absolutely learn from the experiences of others on the various forums, but you'll get more out of your time in the forums if you learn more on your own first about the application process, b-school itself, post-MBA careers, etc. You will also develop more realistic expectations that can guide your efforts as you pursue school, if you read articles or books about getting an MBA, in addition to seeing what people in the boards say.

That's pretty much all I'm sayin'!

First of all i take that "guarantee" word back.. i was not trying to suggest anything !!!!!

please note that in all sincerity i am not one of those hippodi hoppodee kids, happy go lucky kinds, i work hard and i dont expect nothing other than working really hard!!! I never wanted any one least of all you to get the impression that i would get into a decent school, ask everything around, get into a rather non ambitious seat and eat my way through life!!!! I am a novice, in need of some information....anyway i dont want the discussion to get spoiled, the thread becoming internecine....so if you have any suggestions, other than the already mentioned :oops: :shock: please chip in..!!!
