The survey interviewed more than 330 marketers, gauging their views on the value of a university education.
It found just 39% would have gone to university faced with today's costs of university education. The remaining 24.7% of the sample said they did not know.
On average, marketing graduates earn an average salary of just £18,000 (according to the Association of Graduate Recruiters).
