    Wharton, Kellogg, Kenan-Flagler, Tepper PhD Management

    Sponsored Ad:
    Hi guys,

    I wanted to solicit feedback on the reputation of Wharton's management program, specifically OB area. When I look for previous posts, I can only find discussion of Econ or Finance, so I thought I'd open this up to see if there are any hits. When I think about the feel of my interviews, research, and placement of other programs to which I applied, Wharton seems like the clear choice. What about faculty? Are they too star-studded to provide attention, or is this a misconception? Can any of the other programs contend (Kellogg, maybe)?

    It's a great program. In my personal experience, if you do a PhD in a program like that (or really any top 10ish program), your outcome will depend much more on your abilities, persistence, and academic hustle (including managing your faculty/advisors) than the program itself.
    This is hard work

    Thank you for the advice, doingfine.

    Sorry to interrupt, but did you hear back from UNC after interview? Also did you get invited to Kellogg?

    Good news from UNC, yes, not sure about Kellogg. I think (per GradCafe) invites went out today so it may not be an option for me anymore.
