Hey there!

I'm a swiss undergraduate (Business Administration) student and considering to study my master of courseworks (Master of Marketing) either in Sydney or Perth.

Into consideration would the following universities come:

Sydney:

University of Sydney
University of New South Wales

Perth:
University of Western Australia

These unis are all members of the group of eight so as far as I know well recognised national as well as international.


But I'm quite unsure in which city i will spend 1-1.5 years of my live.

To make you the answers more comfortable some infos about me:

- I grew up in a suburb near zurich city (1 million population)

- I like the city-life but but also the nature, the beaches, some relaxed environments

- I like the cosmopolitan (trendy) lifestyle but also a bit laid-back

- I like to play golf, dive, drink wine and relax sometimes on the beach


It's important for me the make the right choice for my job perspectives in Europe. Which city is in your opinion more well-known in Europe. With a Master in Marketing in which city are the chances higher in the job market in Europe?

Thanks so much for the answers!

Of course Sydney is more well-known in Europe and the rest of the world. You probably know that Perth is much smaller, so if you want to be close to the action I'd choose Sydney. If I was in your shoes I'd choose Sydney, simply because there's so much to do and there's nothing Perth has that Sydney doesn't (except isolation, maybe). But then again, it'd be nice to see more people choose Perth, and plenty of students still have fun here!

I would also consider just outside of Sydney:
The University of Wollongong
The University of Newcastle
These are in a way satellite cities of Sydney, Wollongong in particular as it is substantially closer to Sydney, only 80K's or so.
Both are well established universities with good reputations.

For an MBA the AGSM (joint USyd/UNSW) is tops in Oz followed by Melbourne. For a Masters in Marketing, it would follow that USyd would be the better choice. I vote for USyd as it is more recognized outside Oz (at least people have heard of it more than UWA).
Australian MBA Rankings Australia - MBAGuide.com.au

Curious though, how did the OP come up with these 2 choices?

Your Describing a lifestyle in abundance in Perth... although Sydney does promise the city/nature lifestyle as well.

On the professional side of things, i think what your looking for is (Master of Marketing Research). Best taught at Edith Cowan University (ECU), located in Perth, Western Australia.

However UNSW and USYD are easily more recognizable in Europe
If your looking to study in a University with Status as the main reason go for Sydney!

@ minibrings
these two cities were strongly recommended by friends etc., the programs in these institutions are recognised and you don't find them in europe (except France which i'm not considering).

Of course Sydney has better reputation from the professional side, i think i will apply for sydney and perth and if i get into a program in sydney i would go for it.
