Let me lay it out straight for you. I hold BBA & Marketing from the Canadian University Dubai, and there are thousands of students just like me. Even though I stand out as a Magna Cum Laude with a GPA of 3.75, I couldn’t get a job in the marketing field with my marketing degree as I have planned. Or if I could, the job would pay me 3000 AED only per month while expecting me to do an enormous amount of job. And that comes with overtime work.
Studying in Dubai is an amazing experience. There are a lot of great teachers and cool classmates. Plus, you get to study with comfortable conditions and exciting forms of entertainment for you to enjoy during your free time.
I get asked a lot by newcomers about which major they should go for. However, the truth is that I shouldn’t really be answering your questions. Choosing a path to take is an important decision to make, and you shouldn’t be asking others about it. Instead, you should be asking yourself. What do you really want to do in life? Once you answer that, you’ll know the answers to your questions. Only then will you know if a marketing degree is worth it for you.
