SCHULICH: Master of Marketing (MMKG) Review?  [#permalink]

Recently, came across a brand new program that was launched by Schulich School of Business (York University), it is called Master of Marketing (MMKG). Program is only 12 months, as per outline, it is very condensed in marketing courses. More marketing courses more than would expect from MBA in Marketing. They call it professional degree. "A highly specialized professional degree to equip graduates for the dynamic world of marketing"
http://schulich.yorku.ca/programs/mmkg/

One concern, the mentioned on the website, the program is not yet quality approved
"*Note: The program fee structure is subject to approval from the York University Board of Governors and Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. Until approval from the Ministry has been received, students are not eligible for OSAP."

I am sure it will be a challenge funding the program, it's $40k/year.

Appreciate all suggestions, what you all think?
How superior is this to an MBA in Marketing vs Master in Marketing?

Hi essprsodose

I have recently applied to the program as well. I somehow like the program structure as it takes a deeper dive into marketing as compared to a MBA-marketing.
If one is passionate about working in the marketing field , this program is a good fit.

However, Since i am an international student. I am not aware of the intricacies of the OSAP.

Have you applied to the program?

Schulich provides an environment for personal growth and development, right from the first day. Canadian culture and diversity is pretty evident once you look around in the campus. The same diverse quality is evident in the academic, cultural and club activities that are organized in the school. So culture wise, the school molds you into a global citizen. Careerwise, school has direct access to Toronto’s highly competitive job market with strong alumni network to guide you. The school have all resources and facilities required to make you a good MBA graduate. The rest is upto you.

Hi Essprdose

I applied during round 1 since the program perfectly aligns with my areas of interest, awaiting decision at the moment.

What about you?

Putting together my app at this moment. Do they have interviews at this program or it's video essay only?

Hi guys! Does anyone who applied have an update? I applied a few weeks ago and got an interview (bombed it - car trouble and was late and flustered - nightmare) but still have my fingers crossed. Has anyone gotten an interview or been admitted? I know the program is new so not a lot of insight or traces of interest online yet so feedback would be helpful

Hi Lamara,

Sorry to hear that, could you shed some light on the interview? What was asked and how did it go overall?

I applied before the round 1 deadline, yet to receive an update.

RedIndian interview questions were along the lines of . “Why this program”, “what companies would u like to work for”, etc. I mostly repeated what I had in the essay.It was short - 15 minutes. Not sure if it was because they had already dismissed me because of my tardiness so wasn’t wasting time on me or if that is how it normally is. I applied in round one too but I know the interviewer was off for a week based on by an auto email I got so maybe they are just slow. Are u domestic or international?

Thanks Lamara

I am an international candidate,
I liked the curriculum of the program as it takes a deeper dive into marketing as compared to other analytical programs or an MBA in marketing.
Would love your take on the program in relation with the scope in Canada for marketing roles?

I think it is good...the courses are in line with what companies are looking for, I think. Entry level positions are competitive but if you are looking to go into management this is a shoe in. I actually worked with two marketing managers who were more clueless than I was about strategy, digital marketing, etc. A masters in anything gives u a leg up - everyone has a first degree here

Sounds good, i come in with a few years of experience as well. Dont have any academic background in marketing hence this program fits.

Best of luck with your final decision. Lets just hope we get through!

Hi Guys!
I’m still in the application process and I hope to be done by second round. Any tip you can share about the video essays? What do they ask?
Thanks!

Hi Linacamargo

The video questions are pretty general in nature

I can recollect one of my questions(1/2)

What do I enjoy doing during my spare time?

The written essay was, What in my opinion are common mistakes made by managers?

Hi RedIndian! Thanks for your answer!
Ill practice that question for my video essays..
I though the questions for the written essays were the same. I can’t remember it exactly but one of my question was naming activities that demonstrate my leadership activities.
