Student Experiences

My Favorite Marketing Courses

Written by Smruti Iyer

At UTD I’m pursuing double master’s degrees in management science and marketing. The marketing program offers many courses covering a wide range of topics. They cater to the interests of all students pursuing marketing, which was the main reason I chose this program. The program continually updates and upgrades its courses to stay relevant with the current industry requirements. Alex Edsel, the program director, also holds course previews every semester, which was one of the most helpful sessions during my master’s experience.

My Professors Brought the Latest Tools and Techniques Into the Online Classroom

Written by Joshua Schaap

Ultimately, what drove my final decision was my in-person meeting with MS in Marketing Program Director Alex Edsel in January 2018. Director Edsel made time to visit with me while I was in Dallas for a business trip despite his busy schedule. We discussed topics relating to web analytics, advanced attribution and an in-depth review of the MS in Marketing program. After this meeting, I knew the Naveen Jindal School of Management was a perfect match for me.
