I'd add Northwestern MECS, MIT TIES, and maybe Berkeley Haas BEPP to the list. I know the first two have quant training and are strategy focused. Haas is quantitative, but less strategy-focused.
I am hoping to draw on urch's collective wisdom to construct a Top10 or Top20 list of strategy phd programs that are more quantitative/econ-heavy in nature. I was able to find three strong programs, based on a review of course requirements for students, faculty research, and job market placements:
Toronto Rotman Strategic Management
Duke Fuqua Strategy
Can I get your opinion on the three programs above? Would you say all of them are Top10 among strategy programs that take a quant/econ approach? How do they fare among strategy programs more generally?
I have only identified three programs so far. Can you help me expand this list? I would like to end up with a Top10 or Top20 list if possible.
If you are in the know, can you shed light on what the job market looks like for grads from the econ-heavy strategy programs listed above? Specifically, which departments (or groups within departments) hire these grads? I assume grads from these programs conduct research that is more strategy-heavy than the research coming out of traditional econ departments. At the same time, I also assume that the research in these departments differ from the research coming out of traditional management groups at bschools. Who comprises the demand side?
Look at where your dream schools are placing their research and you will know the schools / job market they are in. Strategy is broad enough for a diverse range of scholars
