MS Marketing Grad Values Learning from Industry Experts

The word underachiever isn’t likely to be found in Morgan Blaylock’s vocabulary, but ambition certainly is. The Cincinnati native says she has big goals and at 22, she’s already checked a few off her list. Morgan was the first in her family to finish college and she now has a Master of Science in Marketing degree as well.

Driven to Achieve

Blaylock reflects on all she’s been able to accomplish in a short time with high school not far behind her. “I’m proud of graduating with my Marketing B.S. in Business in only 3 years and earning my Master of Science in Marketing in 1 year, plus balancing 3 jobs at one time. It’s really pushed me to better manage my time.”

Envisioning Success

Initially torn between two master’s programs, Morgan discusses why she chose UC Online. “I was interested in the University of Cincinnati for my master’s because I wanted a well-rounded experience in marketing. What ultimately led me to choose UC was that I felt welcome and could truly picture myself succeeding there,” she says.

Expert Guidance and Support

It’s no surprise that Morgan, who describes herself as outgoing and creative, valued the relationships she built in the program. Asked about her favorite part, she answers enthusiastically, “The people! I got to learn from amazing industry experts who truly want to see me succeed. There’s no greater feeling than when you’re valued in the program you’ve chosen.”

Blaylock is currently working for Media Campaign Operations Associate at 84.51°, but she’s already dreamed up her next goal and is planning to reach it fast. “I want to start my own marketing/brand company by the time I’m 25, and work to make it a really successful business.”
