    I don't know many people in Accounting. But I know that one of the guys who were accepted into the Accounting PhD program here the same year that I did has a bachelor's degree in Math. And at least a...
  4. Re: PhD Profile Evaluation for Accounting

    Your profile looks very good to me.

    I don't see much room for easy improvement, but I'm not from Accounting. You didn't mention coding skills, maybe there is something to do in that regard.

    Re: Prof Eval - Finance PhD

    I just don't understand why this top 20 or nothing mentality. Even people with extremely strong profiles apply wider than that for a PhD. It's not unrealistic, but it's nearly impossible to tell the...

    I have no experience with Dutch management programs, but I'm assuming they are not so different.

    But when we talk about top programs like you mentioned (top 20-30 is usually extremely competitive), we expect to see something...

    Some things to think about:
    - A lot...
