The Best Marketing Career Program to Follow

A reader asks,

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.
