Candidate Profile

Master of Science in Marketing students are indistinguishable from PhD candidates in their intellectual ability. Nevertheless, these students differ from typical doctoral students on two key dimensions: they do not necessarily aspire to an academic career and they do not wish to commit to a four to five year course of study. College seniors are welcome to apply, as are those with professional experience.
