Help : Profile Evaluation [#permalink] New post 20 Aug 2013, 10:25

I am currently enrolled in an MBA program which will complete in 2014. I am looking for the PHD degree further. Below is my profile:

MBA (2012-2014) :8.7 GPA till 1st year
Work exp (2010-2012) : Analytics domain; IT industry
BTech (2006-2010) in IT: 6.83 GPA
Average extra curricular
Can get the good LOR

I am confused which area to choose for PHD. My work exp revolves around Analytics. My MBA is general management. My interest in Business analytics side. But i am not able to find any good college offering Phd in this field. I have also looked on PHD in Information system, PHD in Business Management field. It looks relevant to my interest and my previous experience. But I am not sure about it.

Could any one please suggest me which are the good colleges and area where i can apply according to my profile.
And also please suggest which exam to give GMAT or GRE

Thanks in Advance.

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,
