    Re: How to Best Determine Rankings?

    Those are all great programs that will open the door to solid R1 placements pretty much anywhere. Columbia is probably the clear top tier school that would appear on most people's top ten list but I...

    Re: How to Best Determine Rankings?

    Top ten and top twenty programs tend to be generic placeholders I think as rankings are going to vary based upon who you ask, what research area they are in, and where they are located. If you ask a...

    Re: Thoughts on transferring PhD programs?

    I know of a handful of people who have transferred programs. In every case but one (following their advisor to a new school), they had to completely start over again. Honestly, I think you might be...

    Sticky: Re: 2020 PhD Applicant Sweat Thread

    Waitlists can be a tough position to be in. There are years where our school will go down the waitlist and other years where they don't. I think it is largely dependent upon what type of students...

    Re: When should I start looking for accommodation

    One note on craigslist - While there are many great deals, you should be careful about how you approach those ads. There are many scam postings in my area and some of them are pretty convincing -...

    Re: When should I start looking for accommodation

    This is very dependent upon region. I don't think it would hurt to start looking soon. Many college towns will sign leases quite early for August move in dates. I am in a hot housing market where we...
  7. 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...
  8. Re: How is the job market for students with PhDs in business?

    My opinion is that the micro market is more challenging, but others may argue that Micro has more A-Level publication outlets which makes it easier to publish.



    I do not know of an easy way to...

    Here is a link to a recent job placement presentation.

    Your experience on the job market will be largely dependent upon the program you are in and how productive you are. I am an ABD student at a...

    Re: How to find graduation and placement rates?

    Yes - definitely a good idea to ask after you've been admitted. I think the comps related questions would be best answered by current students in the program and should give you more insight into...

    Re: How to find graduation and placement rates?

    This would be a good question to ask the PhD program coordinator or existing students in the program. I have noticed that fewer schools are publicly posting placements. These are very important...
  12. Re: Applying in 2-3 years. Any advice to improve profile?

    Since you are pretty sure that academia is where you want to end up, it is probably a good idea to look more closely at the strategy/IS/MGMT programs rather than the econ programs. Econ tends to send...

    Re: Uploading Writing Sample on Apps

    Before I give you this advice, keep in mind that it is US-centric and probably not applicable if you are applying to many international/European style programs where research effectively begins day 1...
  14. Re: Applying in 2-3 years. Any advice to improve profile?

    It is probably a bit of a an overstatement that the DV is always firm performance. Innovation is a booming research area that falls under the strategy umbrella too. It may be more accurate to say...
  15. Re: Applying in 2-3 years. Any advice to improve profile?

    Completely agree with StrategicMGMT. (disclaimer: I am also a strategic management person so I might be a little biased :) ). The market is much better and I think a lot of your interests align...
