I just had some personal/subjective questions regarding the various paths into the profession. I have been looking through some programs at various colleges and Universities in the area.
The options I have considered thus far, would be to do a advanced diploma in applied marketing at a university/college and gain work experience for an MBA or to go into a MSc in Marketing at a University.
My main interest would probably international/global marketing.
So, I guess my question(s) are:
Which program did you go through?
How well do you feel it prepared you for your current role?
In what ways did it help you attain it, if any?
Could you comment on the various routes and roles in marketing, so for instance doing research in a firm or doing sales for a company?
Feel free to interpret these questions broadly and answer anyway that you wish.
