Technology and globalization are transforming the marketing industry as we know it. Businesses prize marketing professionals who solve problems by systematically gathering information on consumers and products, and then analyzing it to create effective strategies. No wonder the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects significant job growth in the field over the next decade.
Suffolk's brand-new MS in Marketing (MSM) program has been specifically designed to help you thrive in this dynamic industry. You'll gain foundational expertise and take applied courses in topics including market research, product management, digital marketing, customer insights, and sales management. Thanks to our faculty’s emphasis on experiential learning, you’ll work extensively with local and global businesses seeking solutions to their strategic marketing challenges.
Suffolk's MSM is the only graduate marketing program offered in the heart of downtown Boston. Our campus is just steps away from resume-boosting internship, career, and networking opportunities at the city's myriad marketing and consulting companies. We're close neighbors of top employers like the Boston Celtics, Salesforce.com, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Allen & Gerritsen, as well.
You’ll learn from Suffolk’s faculty of marketing experts—active academic researchers publishing in top academic journals and practitioners working in diverse industries. Under their direction, you will gain a deeper understanding of marketing concepts and frameworks. In our highly interactive classrooms, faculty members will help you develop the skills, tools, and knowledge you need for an innovative, successful marketing career.
Suffolk will also connect you to key resources including the Marketing Advisory Council, composed of local industry leaders; the New England Insights Association; the American Marketing Association; and proud Suffolk University alumni working in Fortune 500 companies around the world.
