Is Ph.D. in business possible for me? [#permalink] New post 01 Jul 2004, 12:03
Hi, everyone!
I was thinking about Ph.D. for a couple of years. I have MS in applied math ( I got it 9 years ago). Combined GPA =3.69, GMAT is bad -640 (I am going to retake it). TOEFL- 290. The problem is that my work experience is limited (Due to the personal reasons I did not work for almost 5 years). And I can only obtain recommendations from my Russian university or community college, where I took accounting classes for CPA certification and I think it is not acceptable. This why I decided to get MS in accountancy (hopefully it will take just a year).
Do you think I have any chance of getting in good Ph.D. programs?

Hi, Elena,

No doubt about it. Even with a GMAT of 640, you can get into doctoral programs in business, including some that are AACSB-accredited. It depends on what particular kind of university you're considering. Your strategy of getting a master's in accountacy is excellent. Also, even though your prior GMAT score is good enough, it would not hurt to take the GMAT again, especially since a high score can mean some good grants.
