Re: Profile Eval - PhD in Strategy/Decision Sciences Fall 2021
If you're interested in groups like Duke Decision Science, then that's going to be significantly more quantitative than what most programs in 'strategy' would be. I was in a somewhat similar situation when I was applying.
From my perspective, there aren't all that many pure decision science groups that are actually listed as 'decision science'. One potential way to find more like-minded groups though would be to look at programs like Duke and GWU and see where their graduates are. The departments where they are might have a good fit even if they are listed as part of an operations or management science department/group.
For example, I was in a similar situation when I was applying. I personally felt that Duke DS was too methodologically focused for my tastes. Instead, I picked a group that has slightly less focus on methodology, but my advisor and our co-author are both Duke DS grads.
