New Master's Before PhD in Business?
Mike567 posted a topic in PhD in BusinessOriginally, I earned my BA with a double major in Business and History: total GPA of 3.75. I planned to become a history professor so I completed a MA in History from a top 50 national university with a GPA of 4.0. At this point, I realized the poor job prospects for people who earned a PhD in history. Fast forward 18 years... in order to support my family I teach mathematics and computer science in a public high school. At this point, I figure it is now or never to become a university professor. I am looking at applying to AACSB accredited programs for a Business PhD that begin Fall 2021. Under consideration: Resign my high school position, work on an online AACSB 12 month business program MS (entrepreneurship, management, or business analytics) for 2020 - 2021, and knock out the GMAT or GRE this summer. I do well on standardized tests typically scoring in the 90th - 99th percentile. - Will a new master's degree increase my chances of being accepted to a Business PhD program? - Arizona State (Carey) accepts up to 30 trasfer credits from a complete master's degree. What other US institutions accept transfer credits? - Could a master's improve my future job prospects?
Quant Marketing Programs_Analytical Modeling
Chelsea9 posted a topic in PhD in BusinessHi all, I'm interested in quant marketing. More specifically, I'm interested in analytical modeling. What are some PhD programs in the US that are good places for analytical modeling? I have a rough idea that MIT, Berkeley, Duke, Wharton, Columbia and CMU may be good places to look at. What are your opinions and what are the differences among those programs (and probably others that I didn't mention) in terms of the theoretical research? Thank you all!
Which PhD Program Should I Look into?
tensai292 posted a topic in PhD in EconomicsI have recently come to crossroads in my career, because I quit medical school and now am trying to get a job to pay off the loans for that detour. However, eventually, I would like to get a higher degree because I always wanted to work in the government and in a leadership position. I have some ideas and have read many of these threads to death lol, but joined because I desperately need some guidance. While most people would say do what you love, well, the problem is that I like a lot of different things and it really comes down to the best program that I will succeed in academically, as well as just where I can have the highest chance of being accepted into a top program, not because I'm an elitist (well, sort of because I've heard from so many people that a PhD is only good if its from a top 20 school) but also because I've noticed that they generally give financial aid to all the attendees. At this point I've considered economics, business (finance/economics), public policy, political science. But am looking for other similar areas, such as Urban Planning (which I hadn't even heard of until about 10 minutes ago!) Some stats to help you out: BA in Economics from a top 50 US school, GPA 3.4 (its a little lower than I'd like it to be because of my premed courses) My GRE scores: 690V (97%) and 740Q (80%), and 4.0 Writing (I don't really plan on taking it again because I'm a terrible test taker and would probably score lower if not the same...except maybe my writing since I didn't really even look at that area before the test) I've taken Math up to Calc II, but am willing to enroll in other courses to strengthen my application while I am working. However, I'm not strong in math, well, I'm not very good at proofs, or programming (compsci stuff) All my research experience previously is in the medical field, scientific research. I do have my MBA but its from the same institution I got my BA from and while its accredited, its unranked. Its a bit odd as I'm working backwards, i.e trying to find a PhD program that fits my stats rather than brushing up my stats to fit a specific program, but I'm kind of just floating ideas in my head. I'm really looking for something applied, not theoretical, and something macro scaled, not micro. And I'm open to suggestions of any top PhD that my GRE scores would get me into since I'm exploring right now. I would be willing to take courses in whichever subject area over the next couple of years where I will be working (hopefully). If you got through all that, thank you, and please give your opinions candidly.
