    In essence, Compustat is a database transcribing financial statements. If you need firm-level financial information, this is the best database you can go for.

    I suspect that with your math background your only real shots on this list are UT-San Antonio, and maybe Simon Fraser.

    If you mention to these schools that your end goal is to go back to...

    Are you trying to get into any PhD program, or a PhD program which will let you place into a research school?

    I think you can get into "a" PhD program, but your math background and GRE scores will...

    Let me offer a couple of other points, some of which have been touched on in some manner.

    First, on average, your advisors have a much better feel for the job market than you do. They likely sit...

    It is as important as you think it is, and then some.


    That said, your post refers to "teaching" at various tiers. It is not particular difficult to jump tiers to "teach", but it is...

    If you are interested in empirical work, OOP like c++ will mostly help in learning statistical software packages. Other than that, not much.

    I am finance so five years is the norm. But sure:

    First year: easiest and most boring. Almost entirely Econ coursework + menial GRA work. When I am stupid enough to open my mouth and give...

    It isn't needed. As the above posters reference, it is more of an applied degree and won't significantly improve your chances. Unless you land some major references that you won't have access to in...

    About to head to the market and I have enjoyed my time thoroughly. There were a lot of nights with 3-4 hours of sleep in between, of course.

    I think what the poster is referring to is that the theory in this area is somewhat played out. In the theoretical areas, one can slightly improve some derivative models by adding some...

    Schools will likely adjust in other areas to maintain/attract top faculty. A day after the budget deal passed, UC Davis posted a job listing.

    As you are discussing, OP, potential applicants don't care about the demand now, they should care about the demand five-six years from now. This is virtually impossible to predict. They were saying...

    I was going off of my own observations; seeing job market candidates come and go over the past 4-5 years. Elite theorist candidates tend to do better than the most prized empirical candidates, but...
