Re: How is the job market for students with PhDs in business?
He clarifies in a later tweet that he only included tenure track jobs. The majority of jobs listed in the 600 figure I gave above are also tenure track but there are a few lecturer/VAPs listed as well (No adjuncts or post docs). However, the spring market is just starting so I suspect that more job postings are coming.
Although the Management market is healthier in terms of PhDs:Jobs ratio and probably pay, your program does make a difference. If I were in your position, I would probably plan on sticking with Management. But if you get into a top ten sociology program and a much lower ranked business program, I wouldn't immediately discount the sociology program. One of the most gifted early career researchers in my area actually has a PhD in Sociology and is at a reasonably ranked R1 business school. It is rare, but a strong sociology PhD can make their way into a business school if they study the right research topics.
