Top-10, Top-15, and Top-20 Departments
AbdulB posted a topic in PhD in EconomicsHi 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?
PhDs in Canada
dexdi posted a topic in PhD in EconomicsI want to do a PhD in development economics and I have been looking into PhD programs in Canada. However I feel like the requirements are very spread out. Universities like Toronto have a minimum GPA requirement but the people that get in have way higher GPAs than that, and others like McGuill, have lower requirements. What I'm trying to ask is if anyone here has experience with these programs, should I avoid some simply because they might be extremely hard to get in? Just because I do not have the money to spend on many applications and my grades or GRE scores are not that great either.
Top US universities for OB/Management
panaceum posted a topic in PhD in BusinessHello everyone, First of all, as I am new to this forum, hello everyone reading this post :) I am a British student currently in my penultimate year. I know what the ranking for OB for the British unis is but not sure about the American ones. Is there even any ranking for the top 10 unis? Or is it simply the case that whatever university from the top 10 you apply to it is going to be amazing for OB anyway. The order I thought about would be Harvard, Stanford, MIT, UPenn, UC Berkley, Columbia, NYU Stern, Chicago, Yale. While I know there are rankings available online, there is simply this thing you just know from being in a particular country. So any advice on my list, whether you agree, disagree, would add or remove any universities, would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
