  1. Re: What is Bocconi University's standing in the field of strategic management?

    I'm not in Management, but top 20 for research is insanely high (it's not like rankings for undergrad or master's). A school certainly doesn't need to be in that range to be considered excellent.

    Re: How to Best Determine Rankings?

    For PhD programs, top 10 and top 20 are so close to each other that it's probably impossible to tell them apart in general terms. Even distinguishing between top 20 and top 50 can be a huge...
  3. Re: Profile Evaluation - Ph.D. in Business (possibly Marketing (OB))

    1 - I never thought about this. Actually, I did not take many math-related courses in my bachelors' and masters' programs even though the program names may seem to involve a lot of math. Anyway, I...
  4. Re: Profile Evaluation - Ph.D. in Business (possibly Marketing (OB))

    1 - "Number of programs planned to apply to: around 10" - It seems a low number to me. Not too low, but competition for PhD programs in marketing can be fierce, and you probably can find more than 10...

    Re: How to Best Determine Rankings?

    Although rankings like QS can be useful as a starting point, I recommend applicants to be very, very careful about using rankings. You can easily disregard an amazing school because it is low in...
  6. Re: Doing a masters before applying for Phd in management or skipping it?

    Most PhD students have some kind of graduate degree, like a masters, but certainly there are still many who go straight from undergrad to a PhD. Maybe around 20% do a PhD without a masters or...
  7. Re: How to self-learn Phd-level strategic management knowledge?

    Well, you can learn some strategic management by yourself. But something that would really be considered PhD level? That's a huge challenge. Like, I have a bachelor's, an MBA, a Master's, and even...

    Re: Profile eval for 40 year old :)

    Well, at least for business schools, it's hard to say who would be a "traditional applicant". We really have a lot of different people. Regarding age, for example, I'm 46, and I'm not the oldest at...
  9. Re: Thoughts on transferring PhD programs?

    Well, that's true for the vast majority of us. It's pretty rare to get an offer from our # 1 choice, usually we have to settle for less. And still we don't think about reapplying in the future...
  10. Re: Thoughts on transferring PhD programs?

    I'm not saying that it does not increase your chance. But whether that increase is from 0% to 1%, or from 2% to 10%, for example, should matter, and should depend on what is preventing the applicant...
  11. Re: Fellowship opportunities after admission

    I never tried anything like that. But I've been part of some talks related to money issues here, and opinions seems to range from "not much of a chance" to "don't waste your time with that".

    Of...
  12. Re: Thoughts on transferring PhD programs?

    I agree with BCB. You gotta be pretty masochist to start a PhD, and then start everything all over again.

    And, as we often say here, we should only apply to schools that we would be happy with,...

    Re: Any advices about being wait listed?

    Typically, when you get an offer, you have until April 15 to accept or decline it.

    So, I think you should wait a little, it's still February, a lot of things can still happen until then,...

    Sticky: Re: 2020 PhD Applicant Sweat Thread

    A lot of interviews are individualized, with different professors, who have different schedules and priorities. Some gradcafe posts may be fake, of course, but I usually found them to be quite...

    Sticky: Re: 2020 PhD Applicant Sweat Thread

    A short second interview is not necessarily bad. Some programs like to have the opinions of at least two professors, and then they do a second interview because of that (even if the professor for the...
