The 20-month program is designed to provide an opportunity for students to achieve a master’s degree while working full time. The hybrid format consists of on-campus and online courses. The on-campus courses will take place within two one-week sessions.
The online program consists of the same courses, taught by the same professors, as the full-time program, and students will be held to the same academic standards. Like the graduates of the full-time MSMR program, the online MSMR graduate will be skilled in traditional marketing research techniques such as experimental design, sampling, data collection, and analysis, as well as leading-edge marketing technologies, methodologies, and software packages.
