EUGENE, Ore., Dec. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- College Choice, a leading authority in college and university rankings and resources, has published its 2017 ranking for the Best Master's in Marketing.
Marketing is a field marked for significant growth in the upcoming years. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, jobs in marketing management are poised for 9 percent growth in the next 10 years, and jobs in marketing research analysis are expected to increase by 19 percent.
"Anyone interested in moving into an area of increased specialization in marketing should consider how a master's degree in the field might help," Christian Amondson, Managing Editor of College Choice said of the ranking. "It's also worth noting that the median income of someone with a master's in marketing can double the median income of a bachelor's degree holder."
College Choice created the 2017 ranking for Best Master's in Marketing based on a program's reputation alongside its average return on investment. The sources for this information come from a variety of publicly accessible records, including a nationwide survey published by the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA, U.S. News & World Report, the National Center for Education Statistics, and PayScale.com.
