  1. Hello everyone, I am new here but I have been reading many posts the past few days and learned quite a bit regarding Accounting PhDs. This is a great community so thank you to everyone. I notice a lot of mention of tiers when applying, but most of the applicants and tiers are towards archival side. Even when reading some academic articles on the subject, they are dated, but state that there is a noted impact on your career based on the school you choose to attend for your PhD. Basically attending a lower tier school can mean you will be very limited to opportunities is higher tiers, barring some miraculous research publications and major connections. Is there a known tier / ranking for tiers in the behavioral side (experimental or field study? Or do we just take the rankings from BYU for experimental and each topic area? And do these change when you go by topic area for managerial, audit, and financial? Furthermore, I am guessing most of these schools are in US, but are there highly recognized PhD programs (and which "tier" would be outside the US that would be recognized in US or anywhere in the world: 1. Asian Pacific 2. Canada 3. Australia Thank you for your help. And for those waiting for interview calls and results, I wish you all great luck to get into your dream schools!
  2. There are a lot of rankings available on the internet these days (QS, USNews, etc). IS there any way to decide which one is the most reliable one for economics phd rankings?
  3. I decided a bit late to try to pursue an Econ PhD--it's been a major of mine for a while, and I've been taking some math courses, but I do graduate in a year, so there's not just a whole lot of adapting I can do at this point. I understand the programs are competitive, and that's okay. I'd just like some thoughts on what I can do with what little wiggle room I've got, and what rank of school (Top 20? Top 50?) I should focus on. I'll work on my applications plenty, but that's easier to change. Graduating: May 2021 Type of Undergrad: Unranked (top ~120) U.S. University. BS in Econ, BA in Political Science & Spanish, Data Science minor. Think liberal arts school for what I’m studying--some research, but teaching-oriented. Undergrad GPA: 3.9+, should remain above or maybe dip into high 3.8s GRE: 170Q/170V/5.5 Undergrad Econ Courses: AP Macro, Intro Micro, Intermediate Macro/Micro, Applied Econometrics, Theories of Economic Growth, Labor (As). Game Theory and History of Econ (the latter required, unfortunately) planned. Math Courses: Linear Algebra (A), Stats (A). Calc III (summer), Mathematical Statistics planned. I have two spots open, and I’m trying to get into Advanced Calc I, but I don’t have the prerequisites; without a waiver, ODE + PDE or ODE + some proofs course. Other (Relevant?) Courses: Intro to Data Science (A). Data Mining planned. LORs: Professor I had for Intro Micro and will have for Game Theory (Dept Head), other I had for three courses and will assist with (informal) research over the summer. Unsure on 3rd, so will be shakier--but could be related to a fall research project. Programming: R, limited Python Research Experience: None in Econ at the moment, will have limited experience after summer. Was chosen for a Canadian Fulbright for the summer, but, y'know, pandemic. Fall project and (Spring) senior thesis planned. Teaching Experience: I tutored HS students (in government and US history) this past year; TAs are basically STEM-only at my UG. Work Experience: Nothing relevant to Econ/PhD. Research Interests: Transit/Transportation is a hobby interest of mine, so I’m looking at UC Irvine. Other than that, I’m fairly open, but skew toward Labor, Development (Micro), Public, maybe Resource. Concerns: At this stage, I feel like I’m doing what I can in terms of making myself competitive--I’d just prefer not to waste my time and money applying and getting rejected from schools beyond my reach. What kind of schools (rankings, though specific ones are good, too) should I be focusing on? I’m also not really sure where ranks lie (I’ve been using thissince it has subfields). I’m hesitant about going to a “low-ranked” PhD program, even though I’m not sure where that cutoff is. Thanks for your help!
  4. Hey Everyone, I am a strategic management applicant and I was wondering what the best way is to determine "rankings" for PhD programs. I see forum users talking about the top 5 or top 50 schools rather frequently and I am a bit confused about how this is being determined. I am trying to balance my research fit, which is of course the most important thing, with a quality school ranking so I can achieve a good placement upon finishing. I found the UT Dallas top 100 ranking and I am finding this to be the only real ranking available. Since I am in strategy, I ranked by journal and selected only the strategic management related journals through 2015 -2020. Although, there is much overlap with OB in terms of journals so it is hard to differentiate. I also tried only selecting Academy of Management (AMJ) and Strategic Management Journal (SMJ). The results do not seem to be representative of what people are saying. For example, Minnesota is ranked very high at number 4 for just AMJ and SMJ and yet I do not frequently see Minnesota hailed as Top 5. Yet Berkeley is 89th, Stanford is 61st, and Columbia is 26th and seem to be considered some of the best. Are these schools riding on their national reputation or MBA rankings? Or perhaps, on the non-management departments research? I guess I am confused if there is a better ranking system somewhere or if maybe some users here know the reputation for strategic management specifically among schools that might help me decide which programs will land better placements given that they have scholars focused on my research interest. Thanks in advance for your valuable insights.
  5. Hello everyone, You may be interested in this that has been circulating around: Management (STRAT-ENT-ORG) UTD Rankings Per Capita | Leeds School of Business | University of Colorado Boulder UTD rankings "per capita," that is, productivity per faculty member. While no ranking is representative, it is an interesting perspective.
  6. Hi! I have found these three rankings but I'm not sure which one is best: 1. Tilburg University: Tilburg University Economics Ranking - Tilburg University 2. IDEAS: Economic Institution Rankings | IDEAS/RePEc 3. QS: Economics & Econometrics | Top Universities Additional, I have two main questions: 1. What is the best ranking for top economic grad schools? 2. Are there rankings of economic grad schools for each research area of economics (I mean rankings in macro, micro, econometrics, development, etc.)? If not, how can I know which ones are the best grad programs in economics in my research area of interest? Thanks!
  7. Hi everyone, just wanted to ask a simple question. Are the top-5, top-10, ... etc. phrases refer to a well-established rankings? or is it simply referring to USNews ranking? I have seen different schools for different rankings and cannot seem to find a consensus on it. What is *really* top-20?
  8. Hello everyone, I was wondering if anyone knew how to access the previous US News Rankings for economics graduate programs. I understand they do it about every four years or so, and if anyone knows, that would be great. I've done some searching around and understand that there might b some copywrite issues, but at least pointing me in the right direction would be swell. Cheers mates
  9. I'm a CB applicant more interested in the JDM side rather than pure CB... I have offers from several "top tier" schools and I'm curious for people's thoughts on rankings within that tier. Note: I'm aware of the UTD/doc sig rankings. I've chosen not to rely too heavily on them, as CB profs often publish in non-marketing journals and are still leading scholars in their fields. I also value aspects of the program beyond publications (student wellbeing, professor interest in student support, etc).
  10. Just a question I've been curious about: when people on this forum (or in academic economics in general) refer to a school's ranking, is there any one source that they are going by? From AEA's website, there are a number of different lists and methodologies behind rankings (American Economic Association), and although we know the likely suspects in the top 5, top 10, maybe even top 20, particularly as you go lower in the rankings it seems there can be a fair amount of variance from list to list. Is there any "gold standard" that economists use to assess a PhD program's position? Or do people just not care about that so much?
  11. Hi all, I have been having a hard time to think about accounting schools ranking. Jindal and BYU give quite different rankings for colleges, how should I go about it? How to make judgments about accounting departments vs schools?
  12. I would like to hear what you folks think about my packet for the schools in the 25 - 60 range, will be submitting for early deadlines in December 2018/January 2019.. Test Scores (GRE): 161Q (80%) 159V (80%) 4.5 AW (80%) Undegrad GPA: 3.89 (Business, accounting focus) Graduate GPA: 3.80 (MBA with a finance specialization) Research Experience: Fairly strong with data analysis and computation; independent study in statistics (not published) Teaching Experience: Coaching with Executives (with former professor, LOR writer) Letter of Recommendation: Strong letters from graduate professors (I also write a killer personal statement) Work Experience: Extensive, 10+ years across multiple industries; I currently serve as a financial services examiner with a state agency (safety and soundness compliance) Concentration Applying to: Management: Entrepreneurship, Strategy, International Business/Project/Portfolio Management Number of programs planned to apply to: 8 - 12 Dream Schools: University of Virginia, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, University of Texas at Austin, University of California-Irvine, Vanderbilt University Other Questions: What made you want to pursue a PhD? I am overflowing with research ideas that my mentors consider interesting and I want to make a contribution that will stand the test of time. Questions or concerns you have about your profile? I went the University of Phoenix for my undergrad (physical campus, at night, while working 50+ hours!) Any additional specific questions you may have: I would like to consider myself a very solid applicant for schools in the 60 - 100 rankings, give or take a few spots. Schools like UC-Riverside (68th), University of South Carolina (62nd), and University of Georgia (63rd, and a LORs Alma Mater) feel like as-close-to-comfort picks as I can get from a tier 1 research university (rankings are my custom rankings). Thanks for your thoughts!
  13. Asking because I'm currently contemplating a Yale offer, and people (IRL profs as well as anonymous posters on forums) say that their PhD program places better than the department's rank and has high value added. I'm wondering what's special about Yale that allows it to outplace higher ranked schools. To be clear, I would be very happy going to Yale, and I don't mean to belittle it at all, I'm just interested in knowing how they manage to punch above their weight, so to speak. It seems obvious that the quality of students coming in and the department's overall reputation would play a big role in placement. Given that Yale's faculty doesn't have quite the reputation in economics as the rest of the top 7, and that prospective students presumably value the faculty a lot when choosing where to do their PhD, how do they consistently place so well? What are the ingredients of their "value added"?
  14. I was curious if you had any idea how to rank Universities and their PhD programs based on their Behavioral Finance department? I saw an old post that discussed the topic (but it was really old). I was especially interested in good behavioral finance programs from schools outside of the top 20. Thanks in advance!!
  15. Hi Guys, I'm new to the forum, though I have been "lurking" for a bit. I'm looking to apply for a PhD in business in 2014 to study org theory under management/org behavior, depending on the department. My question though relates broadly to all business PhDs. I've found these forums really helpful, but I wanted to ask further about "applying broadly". It doesn't seem as simple as applying to schools in buckets of 1-25, 26-50, 51-75, etc as some have suggested. Using the UTD rankings, for example, often less well-known schools are quite well-ranked, while the Ivies are much lower. It seems like in this scenario, neither is really a "safe" alternative to the other. For example, using the UTD rankings sorted by management journals for North American schools, Cornell is ranked 46, suggesting it would be much less selective than say the University of Minnesota Twin Cities at number 7. While I will obviously need to apply to a large mix of schools, I want to develop an intelligent mix. I appreciate that the UTD rankings are not gospel, and that there is a fair bit of randomness involved in the admission process. That said, to the extent possible, I want to follow the advice given on so many threads to apply broadly. I am concerned in this case, applying to number 7 and number 46 would not be very broad at all, and both would be quite selective. What are your thoughts?
  16. I got an admit this year into the University of Alberta's CS M.Sc. program. I regret missing the deadlines to top Canadian universities like Toronto and UBC ; I could have easily secured an admission to their M.Sc. program. I am not sure whether I should join it or apply to better places next year. My area of interest is Data Mining and they do have a good faculty in the area but I doubt the overall reputation of the school. It would be really helpful if someone can throw a light on : reputation, recruiters and research.
  17. Hi...I got a GRE score of 1170 (quant 760; verbal 410)...:livid:...I am an international student with GPA...any chances for admission in any US universities? Can anyone plz suggest which universities might accept this score?? I would also appriciate if someone can mention some European schools which accepts this GRE....plz help!!!!!!!
  18. Hi guys, If I am to apply a business school phd program with scholarship which universities in States would you suggest considering that I am not a very very succesful and genious.I have a gmat score of 650 toefl 100 and gpa 3.6/4. Which schools do you think I can have a chance of being accepted.If you can suggest some I would be delighted.Thank u all.
  19. Hi All, Can any one please suggest me to a good source to get the "UK University Rankings". I need help to figure out which UK University to select. Thanks in advance.
  20. So, I just discovered this site a few days ago and have been lurking and clearly now decided to join. I'm looking into a Phd (just finished up junior year) to try to make Mom & Pop proud, and I have a question for y'all: Before now, I've received much of my "knowledge" of the strengths of different programs by the U.S. News and World Report rankings. In those rankings, there are dozens of programs that are listed as "unranked." However, some of these "unranked" schools, which one would think would be worse than any ranked school, seem to have better reputations here (what specifically comes to mind are American, UMass, West Virginia, Delaware, New Mexico, and maybe Utah). So my question is, are these schools unranked because for whatever reason they didn't fit U.S. News methodologies or didn't send in data or something like that, or does U.S. News believe they are below all the ranked schools? Thanks for the help!;)
  21. Please rank the top 30 PHD Econ Schools This is just for fun... I'm bored & trying to get a feel for what schools are moving up/down... And if you wanna toss out some good Public Econ schools, that would be tremendous. (Leave out T10, I'm not exactly harvard material) Thanks
