Masters in Digital Marketing

Masters in Digital Marketing

Why do a Masters in Digital Marketing?
According to the UK’s Internet Advertising Bureau, the digital advertising sector in the UK alone was worth £5.4 billion (US$8.3bn) in 2012 – a 12.5% increase on the previous year.

And in a report from EConsultancy (again mainly UK-focused), surveyed companies were spending on average 35% of their total marketing budgets on digital channels, with almost a third dedicating more than half their total budget to digital. Half were planning to recruit more people into their digital marketing teams in 2013, and 71% planned to increase digital spending in 2013, compared to just 20% increasing offline spend.

Josep-Maria Fàbregas, director of the Master in Direct and Digital Marketing at Pompeu Fabra University’s Barcelona School of Management, says most students on the program have a background in studying business administration, marketing, advertising or PR.

In terms of professional experience, backgrounds are varied, spanning the full spectrum from banking and insurance to travel and tourism, fashion and media to NGOs and education.

Additional desirable qualities for applicants to a Masters in Digital Marketing include: familiarity with key marketing trends and practices, awareness of the importance of digital media and its applications, and a readiness to learn new things – and then keep on learning!

Course of Management Degree

Course of Management Degree

Management degrees give students a broad foundation in topics relating to business, finance, economics and marketing. Most management degrees have a very practical focus, with opportunities to complete work placements and professional projects included as part of the program. For those more interested in the theory which goes into informing policies and best practices in management, there are also more research-orientated management degrees to choose from. And, of course, programs that combine the two.

Whether you want to learn more about management but are unsure about which sector you want to work in, or want to explore a particular management specialization in terms of role (such as human resource management) or industry (such as hospitality management), there are plenty of degrees available to help kick-start your management career.

The demand for management professionals in almost every sector of human activity means you’ll find a vast range of management degree programs available, including many taught as combined honors or joint programs (such as business and management, management and marketing, management and mathematics, management with international business, management with sustainability).
