Hello all, I am about to finish my undergraduate degree next year in English Language Teaching. However, having done internships and had marketing&communications roles for short-term periods I don't feel like I want to pursue a teaching career and I would like to find out ways to make a switch to a marketing career.

I am planning to do Masters in Management since they generally do not require a business,economics or that sort of background in order to be admitted. I've already started getting prepared for GRE, TOEFL and any other admission requirements. Nevertheless, I have a couple of questions in my mind and I would be really pleased if you take a look and share your advices.

- Do you think doing a Masters degree in Management with a specialization in Marketing is a good idea to switch my career to marketing ?
- What sort of handicaps would I be likely to face ?
- I haven't thought of industries that I would like to work in thoroughly, but I reckon publishing companies would be a good start. Do you agree?
Honestly, I really wouldn't care the industry as long as I am on the marketing side, however regarding my undergraduate I thought it would be a nice idea to work in marketing sides of publishing companies as a start. I am personally interested in consumer goods, especially a marketing position in a clothing company would really be interesting to me.

I am thinking of masters programs in Europe, specifically in France, Germany, and Spain.
Would my undergraduate be a handicap for the application to good business schools in these countries? Do you think I should be more determined about my career plans while applying to business schools ? I am very determined that I would like to pursue a career in marketing and ascend ladders to a management position in marketing but I've not made up my mind thoroughly about the industry.

Thanks in advance !

It seems that you have chosen the really good direction of your future career and activities during all your life. That is the reason you have no need to worry about your next steps. Indeed, if you want to be sure that you have a good place, you can just check the job announcements or simply ask the specialists in the mentioned area. Haven’t you done it still? It will help you to assure in the rightness of the way you are going to. That is the reason you have no opportunity to complete the fail of such great profession!
