I can't speak for other Master's programs offered at the school, but the IMC program was the biggest waste of time. You are essentially forced to take the same course over and over, material is repeated, format is the same (heavy focus on group projects and case studies) and half the courses listed in the course catalog are never even available to take. The program is antiquated and professors are extremely out of touch, especially with digital marketing and newer media. The undergrad programs are much more developed and cared for, but the graduate program seems like a complete afterthought. The large majority of my classmates expressed their disappointment and frustration with this program but it only seems to be getting worse. I would suggest saving your time and money and look at other schools to receive a quality graduate level education in marketing.
