    PhD in Marketing. ADDMISSIONS

    Hi all! I am planning to apply for PhD programs in Marketing this upcoming fall (2018). I’m freaked out as hell, cause reading through so many blogs gives me anxiety. My decision to apply for PhD in this autumn was just couple weeks ago, so I just started studying for GRE. Would appreciate mutual support, advices on application! It’s always better to succeed together!! -BloodyMary
  2. I saw a nice thread in the Biology forum that inspired me. Please feel free to add to this post with your own profiles, or experiences thus far in the 2018/2019 entry phase. I could not find anything similar here, so I wanted to do my best to establish a thread that can stand the test of time throughout 2018. Please feel free to copy the text I use as a template for your post. Here is my profile for evaluation. I am hoping for a Tier 1 research university with full funding. Obviously I won't be attempting to apply to anything in the top 30-40 because of my undergrad school and "not incredible" test scores & GPA. I have some solid recommendation letters from tenured professors; however, my school is not a research school, and I am not a published researcher. I have a lot working for me in terms of work experience, interpersonal & writing skills, and have focused my desires into contributing to academia in a meaningful way. I know that I would be welcomed at a Tier 2 university; however, I would like to hear whether or not you folks think I am aiming too high or too low with my choices as stated below for the Tier 1 selections. Undergrad Institution: Private-For Profit (lowly regarded, not online) Major(s): Business Minor(s): Accounting GPA in Major: 3.9 Overall GPA: 3.89 Position in Class: Top Type of Student: Domestic, White Male, Adult/Professional Graduate Institution: Southern Region Jesuit University Major(s): MBA Minor(s): Finance Overall GPA: 3.80 Position in Class: Top GRE Scores (revised/old version): Q: 161 (78th) V: 159 (83rd) W: 4.5 (82nd) Research Experience: Low-medium; Independent research study during MBA, focused on predicting outcomes based on statistical analysis using STATA. Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Honor society undergrad. Endowed scholarship recipient during MBA. Pertinent Activities or Jobs: Significant professional experience and related skills Any Miscellaneous Accomplishments that Might Help: Professional certifications from globally recognized entities Special Bonus Points: Strong recommendations, chosen to represent the University in various ways. Any Other Info That Shows Up On Your App and Might Matter: Pre-doc candidate at the 2017 Southern Management Association, should have some connections within (safe choice) target universities Applying to Where (I would like to think I could be a strong applicant for this group): University of California San Diego – PhD. – Business – Management George Mason University – PhD. – Communications or Public Policy George Washington University – PhD. – International Business | Management & Strategy (Several school within the SMA conference region as well that would be straight PhD. Business – Management (HR/OB/Entrepreneurship), but I will pretty much know if I would be accepted based on my conversations with the faculty at the 2018 SMA conference.)
  3. Anyone who's applied to Business/Management PhD programs in Canada? I have applied to a few this year, and just wanted to know what are people's opinions about Canadian PhD programs as compared to USA programs. Specifically, in terms of post PhD job prospects, research collaboration opportunities, and general university life? Thanks much!

    PhD (Fall 2017) in Marketing?

    Hi there! I have been rejected by pretty much all of the schools I applied to. With a 3.95 GPA (MBA from a reputed school in Asia), LORs from senior academicians (from non USA based unis, though), a 700 GMAT, and decent SOPs (I had them reviewed by my references, too), a 100% rejection rate has caused significant shock (and depression). I was wondering if someone might be willing to take a shot at demystifying the following? 1. What is the most important criterion in a Marketing PhD application? (To me, it looks like research experience) 2. Can someone who has been away from academics (and working in industry in a non-research position) for many years, and has decided to try to get into academia, actually ever have a chance of making it into a top 10 PhD program in the USA? 3. Anyone out there who has in the past battled the depression arising from rejections and rallied for applications all over again next year? What's your secret? :-(
  5. Hi all, Does anyone here have an experience applying (or got accepted) to CMU (MIIPS) UPenn (M:IPD) or Northwestern (Product Engineering)? Would like to know how do you prepare your portfolio especially if you're not a design student (like I am)! Or do you know any other school that have similar program as I mentioned above? Would be very happy if you'd like to discuss!
  6. Hello, This is my first post on grad cafe. I have been looking at different masters programs for a while now and it would help if I got some third party opinions. I am currently a chemical engineer working for a consulting firm, however my bachelors was in biological engineering (renewable energy, ecosystems). I have worked in this industry for nearly 5 years. I quickly realized I don't really like what I'm doing because I work on spreadsheets most of the day, little people interaction, and it feels really monotonous. I definitely want a more people-focused job, but I don't think I'll get there just by staying where I am. Plus I don't really like working on chemical plants anymore, so this involves changing industries too. I'm hesitant to go for an MBA because my undergrad gpa was only a 2.94, and based on what I'm seeing in this forum, if a 3.0 is considered low, I might be out of luck on that front. I have looked at masters in finance, organizational leadership, and management, but I can't quite decide which one. I definitely want a more broad masters degree so I can cross industries more easily, and all of those interest me. Any advice would be helpful, especially if anyone is pursuing an alternative business degree for similar reasons.
  7. Hi guys, I haven't seen a topic for fall 2017 applicants for masters programs in business and i/o psych yet, so I thought I'd start one. Where is everyone applying? What are your credentials? What's the status on your application? These are the programs I'm applying to: - Master of Applied Positive Psychology - University of Pennsylvania - MA in IO Psychology - NYU - Masters in Computational Social Science - University of Chicago - MS in Marketing Science - Columbia - MS in Global Marketing Management - Boston University - MA in Positive Organizational Psychology and Evaluation - Claremont Graduate University - MS in Human Resource Management and Development - NYU Regarding my credentials, I have a 3.96 GPA, lots of research experience, and 156V/158Q/5.5W on the GRE.

  9. Hi. I'm planning to apply for Operations Research or MEM/MIM/or any other business related degree for my masters studies. I'll be shifting from my Mechanical Engineering discipline. I have not take up any business related courses except for Economics and Professional Ethics. I've also done Optimization during my course work. With a 6.8 CGPA and a 318.5 GRE score (V - 157 Q - 157 AWA - 4.5), I'm planning to use my extracurriculars as my main focus during my applications. I've participated in two business case study competitions, one of which I was a global semi-finalist among 40 teams and I've also helped organize a case study competition of my own. I'm also a keen writer/blogger, which has given me awareness on concepts such as personal branding, content management, analytics and preparing a product like a blog. I wanted someone's take on whether this kind of profile is seen favorably for such programs?
  10. Thank you in advance for anybody / everybody who helps me work through this. My end career goal is to have a research-based career in business. The specific areas that interest me are motivational theory, group performance, leadership theory, and organizational strategy. My background is in Business with minors in Psychology and Mathematics. US citizen, 3.6 GPA, GRE: 162V, 165Q, 4.0W and 670 Psych subject. My undergrad was done at a well recognized private university in the US 7 years ago. My recent job history (current job and last 5 years) has been as an administrator at a large animal shelter. I'm seeking guidance between two programs: PhD in Business or PhD in I/O psych. I have some schools in mind, but don't really want to get into that yet before I actually decide between the two program options. I'm more or less here to get some advise on which program would be more likely to help me reach my goals. I'm not even leaning in any specific direction either at the moment. Having talked to a couple profs of each variety, I've been told I could easily work internally or as a consultant doing research in my interest areas with either degree. I think going with a PhD in Business would potentially give me more options overall since it would open about as many doors as having an MBA while allowing for research positions too, but the PhD in I/O Psychology will pretty much guarantee that I'm doing research after I'm done with school as long as I find a job in the field. So any thoughts / contributions / questions to ask myself / etc... are definitely welcome. I basically know what I want to do and what I want out of my education, but see two pathways that get me there ... just not the % of success and the nuances between them.

    MBA/MA in Education

    Hello, I am currently considering applying to a handful of MBA/MA programs, and I was wondering if anyone else has knowledge of these kinds of programs, or if they are currently enrolled in one, particularly with regards to the field of education. If so, please let me know - I'd love to hear about your experiences! I'm also mulling over entering an MA program directly and applying to an MBA program after accepting an offer of admission from the school of education. Again, if there are any students with that kind of interdisciplinary interest or experience, please let me know! Thank you!
  12. Hey guys, I'm having trouble deciding between 1) U of T: Master of Management Innovation (MMI) 2) York: Masters of Management (Mmgt) - Both of these programs are relatively new - I am a science student hoping to transition into business (both of these programs are for students with a non-business background) Any help or insights would be greatly appreciated !
  13. Hi all, I'm an engineering student in Ireland and as the title of this thread suggests I am deciding between doing a masters degree in Mechanical Engineering ONLY or in a masters degree in Mechanical Engineering WITH business. I am unsure of what I want to a do moving forward in my career and I am unsure which will be better in the jobs market upon graduation. I do enjoy studying engineering but I do feel I could really benefit from studying business related subjects, to become more rounded and increase the number of roles I could work in moving forward. I have read the statistics about the amount of times people re-invent themselves in the workforce and I feel that the joint masters minoring in business may provide greater flexibility down the line if I decide that better opportunities are away from the very technical focused jobs . There is only 5 more mechanical engineering classes in the Mechanical Engineering only masters but I am unsure if this would put me in a disadvantage in applying for purely mechanical engineering roles later in my career from a perceived less complete engineering education. Would HR Departments read through my cv if I chose the masters in engineering with business and decide I am not as capable and as good a candidate when it comes to applying for purely engineering roles? Which program would you recommend? Both are delivered in a good school Thanks for taking the time to read this. I would love to hear your feedback.

    Starting a company in grad school?

    I'm starting grad school this fall, but I'm thinking of forming a small business around some products/ideas for some supplementary income. Coming from an engineering background, I'm looking at an LLC since that seems to be the least hassle. I'm mainly interested in commercializing some apps/software I've developed, but I might do small runs of physical goods as well (electronic devices of my own design). Does anyone have any tips or advice for doing this sort of thing while simultaneously working on grad school? I know that time is going to be a huge issue, but otherwise I'm mainly concerned about things like intellectual property laws (will my university try to claim ownership of things I develop in my time as a student?) and residency issues (starting a company in a state where I'm not currently a resident).

    MS in Global Logistics

    hey y'all, I have been admitted to the MS in Global Logistics program as consolation for rejecting me for their MBA program by Arizona State Uni. The program is only two years old and there aren't many reviews I can find about it. Is there anyone here who has any idea about the course? Also, is it worth getting a degree in Logistics?
  21. Hey guys, I'm a Supply Chain Management student at Arizona State University and I'll be graduating in May next year. Midway through my junior year I realized that I wanted to pursue a career in operations and manufacturing. I had done some research and found that most internships and jobs in operations or manufacturing require you to hold a degree in industrial engineering. I wanted to know if you guys could give me some advice or share your personal experiences on how someone like myself can gain admission (or if it would even be a possibility) into a highly ranked masters in industrial engineering program. I would like to mention that unlike the traditional business student, I have taken all the same math classes engineering majors do and some computer science courses as well (Calculus 1-3, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Calculus-based Statistics, Intro to Programming, Object-Oriented Programming and Data Structures). I have a 4.0 GPA and am part of the honors college here at ASU. I took the GRE recently and did reasonably well (Verbal: 161/170, Quantitative: 166/170, Writing 4.5/6) I would like to thank everyone in advance. Any and all advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Northeastern vs Texas Tech

    Hello Everyone, Need your help in deciding between the two schools. I got admitted to Northeastern U (MS in Engineering Management) and Texas Tech U (MS in Data Science). Please help to answer some queries below. Which one is better in terms of? 1. Course programs 2. Job opportunities 3. Student Experience 4. Difficulty of the course Appreciate all your replies.
  23. Good Day!! Is there someone here who applied for MS in Data Science for Fall'16 or currently pursuing an MS in Data in Texas Tech? Has anyone been accepted for F'16? If you are currently pursuing the course, I need help to determine if this is a good program. Please share your experiences. Thanks.
  24. All, I have graduated with a BS. in Computer Engineering, and have 1 year of grad school in Electrical Engineering under my belt. I withdrew this past year because I didn't have the finances to continue (working part time, company not helping and paying for tuition wasn't cutting it) My idea now is to go to school in the EU, and switch up my degree program a little bit. After working in a cubicle the last few years I think that I'm not suited to be a conventional EE and want to get into the management side of things. I have been looking for dual Masters degres in engineering and business, but can't find too many. I found http://www.mastersportal.eu/studies/24106/electronics-electrical-engineering-management.html which seems great, but the international tuition would run me about 30G. Does anyone know of other combined masters programs that are in English? I have been looking in Germany (Cheap/Free tuition) but haven't found any similar degree programs in English, only German, English split. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated!
