    Master of Science in Marketing vs. Master of Business Administration

    The marketing industry has undergone drastic changes in recent years, with new technologies leading to a need for employees with new skills, creating opportunity for trained professionals in the field. The Master of Science in Marketing is structured to allow students to acquire advanced skills and techniques they can immediately apply to solve complex strategic and tactical problems relating to customers and competition in the workplace.

    In contrast, Fox MBA programs are driven by core business competencies and are offered in a variety of online and in-person formats. Offering concentrations in a number of fields, they tend to provide a broader, more wide-ranging graduate experience as opposed to the more specialized training of the Master of Science in Marketing.
