Hey there my friend,
Well, in general you should not be selecting your PhD based upon the school but upon the PROFESSOR. It works preeeeetty differently from B-school which is professionally-oriented as opposed to academically oriented. Basically your best bet is to find an advisor who could potentially support you in the area of research in which you wish to specialize, and then you apply to those schools where the relevant professors work.
Hope this helps,
