Hi, I am 27 years old. I have done my Bachelor of Arts in International Hospitality Management and have a work experience in Hospitality Industry (hotel sales) in India for 6 years post which I am working for an online travel company as business development manager for last 7 months. I have inclination towards and want to pursue my career in Marketing/Advertising/Branding. I want to do a full-time Masters degree but am confused over a Masters in Marketing Degree or an MBA. Kindly suggest which one shall be more effective and worth keeping ROI and course duration in prospect. Also, please suggest me on to choose for an Indian University/College or an American/Canadian/Australian University/College.
