MIM/MS/MSC or MBA?? [#permalink]

Hello experts

I have been researching various websites to understand the path which is right for me.
I completed BA Marketing and Advertising from Lancaster University in 2014 with a first class honors. I am currently working. Also I will be appearing for GMAT in March.

I want to continue my education in marketing and its related fields but should I go for an MBA or other masters options that are available as I have 2 years of work experience? Will it be a good option to go for marketing analytics instead of an MBA? What are the job prospects for Msc students?

Your advice would be great.
Looking forward to your reply.

Hi Shiv2016,

Thanks for reaching out! Our firm advises applicants to MBA programs only, so unfortunately we’re unable to offer guidance on other master’s programs. In general, an MBA is going to offer you a more versatile degree with a much broader range of career options upon graduation than a specialized master’s degree would. It’s also more expensive. However, which degree is right for you ultimately depends on what you hope to do professionally and what the requirements of that career path are.

Instead of focusing on where you can get in now, I would advise you to think through what you want to do with your career (both short-term and long-term) and then pursue the degree that will best help you get there. I expect you'll ultimately be happier with your decision that way. If you decide that an MBA is the best fit for you, then you’re right that your chances of admission will be higher with a few more years of work experience under your belt.

I hope that helps! I’m sorry we couldn’t provide more insight into the other degrees you mentioned.
