In your Master of Market Research you focus on topics such as consumer behaviour, marketing strategies and market rules. This is a Masters programme for research experts, whereby market research is conducted both quantitative and qualitative. In surveys, face-to-face interviews or behavioral observation, you conduct analyses on the consumers‘ economic and social environment.
The Master of Market Research is a very distinct study programme, that differs a lot, depending on the university offering it. This explains, too, why it is a tough task to describe actual study contents. While one university may specialise on market technologies, another will concentrate on sustainable consumption.
In an average of four semesters, you will accomplish an interesting, hands-on Masters degree programme in Market Research. Whether you are entitled a Master of Arts or Science usually depends on the country, university and individual programme you opt for.
A Masters degree in Market research naturally opens up a variety of career prospects in marketing, consumer behavioural analysis and sales. However, you can find job opportunities in these areas of expertise, not only in economic enterprises, but in public institutions, NGOs, consumer protection and the R&D sector as well.
