RAPID GROWTH: PR MASTER DEGREES GREW BY 300% IN 10 YEARS

For certain, they’ve topped the profession’s buzz meter as the “most popular” choices among people who want to get into the field quickly, and people in the field who want to get on the fast track to top management.
What makes them popular is their educational philosophy, which is decidedly “practice-makes-perfect.”
