Online MSc Marketing student, University of Glasgow

  • While choosing the program I figured that the most important things for me were best education by a well-known university, time flexibility and location flexibility (study from anywhere I want). This program in the University of Glasgow covered all my needs.”
  • “University of Glasgow is one of the best universities in the world in terms of marketing education. This program helped me to deepen my knowledge in consumer studies and I managed to find a dream job in market research. It is already helping me to structure my knowledge and approach my work in a more profound way.”

Online MSc Marketing student, University of Glasgow

  • “Two main factors played a key role in choosing the University of Glasgow for my MSC. First and foremost was the programme and the content itself. After completing in-depth research, I was not able to find a programme as such in the UK, truly one of a kind out there. Secondly, it was the ranking and the reputation University of Glasgow entails. Being 14th in the UK and 2nd in Scotland really drew my attention and elevated my interest.”
  • “Unique content of MSC Marketing, online distance learning and schedule adjusted to working professionals is what sets it apart from other available programmes.”
  • “Personally, I was able to build upon my existing marketing knowledge and tap into unexplored areas from my bachelor’s degree. Professionally, I was able to apply what I’ve learned during my MSC in everyday work life, spanning across different segments. I was promoted several times and received new benefits.”
  • “The flexibility and “liberty” to organize your own time and pace, completing the tasks when you have free time and not having to flip your whole world around to attend a class. I truly believe the online programmes are the future of studying and a career changing opportunity for everyone.”
