Marketing Studies

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Courses in marketing and communication teach how to create a marketing plan based on market research and marketing principles. These classes usually form part of a certification or degree program. Other subjects include how to utilize consumer decision making trends to help create a brand image.
