Master of Science in Marketing
The Master of Science in Marketing (MSMKT) degree is an innovative program that allows students to develop the in-depth knowledge and practical skills necessary to design, manage, implement, and evaluate marketing strategies.
This program is designed for individuals who want to enhance their career opportunities by obtaining a generalist postgraduate marketing degree with emphasis on data-driven brand management. The MSMKT degree is intended to provide a deeper immersion into the study of marketing than is possible in a typical MBA program.
The MSMKT includes many valuable experiences including: exposure to both qualitative and quantitative marketing courses ranging from creativity and innovation to analytics, the ability to select from capstone course alternatives including study abroad programs and marketing competitions, access to data modeling applications in a state-of-the-art Finance Lab, access to qualitative research coaching through on-campus focus group facility, access to either an internship or consulting project, right to use to custom data analytics tools available from industry partners, the ability to join and participate in activities of the Walsh College chapter of the American Marketing Association
The MSMKT program consists of 11 courses for 32 semester credit hours. The MSMKT degree requires a minimum of 23 semester credit hours in residence at Walsh College. The MSMKT is available as a Dual Degree with the MBA for only 18 additional credit hours of study for a total of 60 credits.
