  1. Is there a thread where we are maintaining MSF or its equivalent business school decisions? Please post a link if we do, otherwise, we should start one, no? I applied to the following schools this session: York (Rejected) Duke (MQM: BA) (awaiting decision) BU (awaiting decision) WUSTL (awaiting decision) Vanderbilt (Rejected) Rochester (Accepted with 60% scholarship) SMU (Accepted - awaiting scholarship decision) Baruch (Will submit application soon)
  2. Hello Guys, I need some insight. Which one should I choose? The operation management/decision science PhD in Kelley, or the STATISTICS Group at Risk Analysis and Decision Making Department at McCombs? If I can graduate successfully, my first option would be to go into academia and 95% of Kelley graduates become faculty. However, I am worried that in the worst case scenario (which I hope and think will not happen), that i dont finish my phd, then I will have to go into industry, then mccombs seems to be a better option, because it's very location in austin. Bloomington is pretty and all that, but indianna is hardly the most developed state in the country. I would appreciate any insight! THANK YOU!

  4. So I've been wondering if anybody in this forum could attest towards the differences of studying economic sociology (/ its synonyms and/or subfields) at a business school vs at a sociology department a little bit? E.g. how would MiT's economic sociology program compare to studying sociology with a focus on econ soc at, let's say, Berkeley or Harvard. Whilst browsing through forums, I've seen people hinting towards the b-school PhD's being rather rushed and more focused on organizational soc, whilst also having "better" job opportunities in the end. The classic departments on the other hand supposedly give you more freedom in choosing your (sub-)field, probably have you go through the classics more in depth, and, obviously, allow you to venture further outside into other realms of sociology as well. As far as I was able to judge (in my, granted, very novice understanding) most of the more renowned names in econ soc still seem to be found at the sociology departments (with potential secondary appointments at the b-schools). Has anybody here made firsthand experiences with the topic or talked to people about it? I hope other people are interested in this as well and that I haven't missed a blatantly similar post on the matter. -Lumpi
  5. Hi everyone, I'm applying to graduate programs this fall and I'm having a hard time deciding between OB PhD programs, marketing PhD programs, and I/O psychology programs. Does anyone have any advice on how to make this decision? From what I've gathered, business school PhD programs typically do the same kind of research done in psychology PhD programs...what other factors distinguish these programs from one another? What are the advantages/disadvantages associated with each? I'm passionate about research, but I don't know if I'm creative enough to be a professor who designs their own line of research. Which programs prepare graduates for a career in industry as well? Any input would be greatly appreciated! Especially if it's from a Canadian perspective!
