I would look at Kellogg for sure for the marketing, and also potentially Yale as well. Up and coming program that places quite a bit of graduates into marketing / brand management jobs. (Smaller class so less competition for the jobs also)

Kellogg/NYU would be a good fit based on the information provided. I would also recommend reaching out to students who have similar goals to seek their insights on how the school/program helped them specifically.
