Profile Evaluation for PhD Accounting, September 2016
Abdullayeva posted a topic in PhD in BusinessHi everyone, I am CIS country citizen and plan to apply for PhD in USA and Canada. I have an undergraduate degree in World Economy from top university in my country (GPA 4.0); MSc in Accounting and Finance (research oriented )in top 10 UK universities (GPA 3.0-3.33, but thesis grade - 4.0 (distinction), that accounts for 60 credits out of 180 received from MSc). Work experience: 2 internships ( Ministry and major telecommunication company) during 2nd year of BSc studies 2 years as part-time tax consultant at one of the Big4 companies during last 2 years of bachelors 1 year (after my master's degree) in audit department at another Big4 company. I got promotion in half a year and currently work as an advanced staff. Also I am a lecturer at state university in my country (teaching Economics to 2year bsc students) GMAT Score: 650 My master's degree was research based and contained lots of econometrics, which at first lowered my gpa due to lack of sufficient knowledge. But then with the help of my Econometrics Professor who was my thesis supervisor I was able to advance my knowledge and got distinction on my dissertation. I loved doing research and currently enjoy teaching. Therefore I would like to continue my career in academia. Would be glad if anyone could advice me whether my background is enough to be admitted to PhD program in USA? And which range of schools should I consider?
Accounting PhD with rather low GMAT-
colonel Buendia posted a topic in PhD in BusinessHello everyone, I have been reading the forum for the past 3 days. It is very informative! Before asking my question I want to let you all know that I tried searching for a profile similar to mine. I know you all have busy lives and it is not right to waste your time. I did not find anything that would resemble my profile and I decided to go on and register anyways. I have: Undergrad in Finance GPA 3.2 from a public Uni in Florida. My weak GPA is the result of working full time while attending school. I am almost done with my Master of Science in Acc at the same Uni. Graduate GPA 3.85 with 3 courses left. I predict I will have at least a 3.7 or may be a 3.8 once the program is finished but 3.7 is a conservative estimate. GMAT 640. It is rather low and I know it. When I took the exam I had to score much less for my masters admission. I used a Kaplan prep book over 5 months reading 10 pages today and 10 pages the following week. I was not systematic and I feel that if were to prepare properly for the GMAT I would certanly increase my score. I have no professional work experience. I have no research experience. Ideally, I want to study Tax. I am fascinated by how taxation policy affects every political decision. I have no interest in top programs and I know I am not competetive anyways. What are some other programs I can pursue? It doesn't matter to me as long as funding is provided by the school. I plan on finishing the PhD and returning in my home country to teach in a college there. I know from contacting UT in SA that my profile is somewhat reasonable. FAU told me that a higher GMAT score is advisable before applying. But what other schools are there? Your help is greatly appreciated.
