Some basic guidelines about your candidacy. Your GMAT score is going to be problematic for the premier programs but this does not mean you should not apply -- just have realistic expectations. Your sweat spot is the next tier, or as I call it emerging first tier programs. Also, you should expect to submit around 15 applications - getting into programs and getting the right fellowship package requires that you diversify your risk when applying.

As for other programs to apply to, this is a wide open question. If you can provide more details on preferred geographic area and research interests, it will be easier to recommend programs to you.

Thanks for your reply.
I know GMAT will be problematic.I won't be too much frustrated if I cant get to the premier program. I am willing to apply especially in North-america and I am interested in "Portfolio management" for PhD concentration. I am already pursuing Masters in finance in Bangladesh which is due to end in June 2013.Can I get directly into PhD program or should I take Masters in finance from a foreign university first???

If you are looking into US universities, go for a PhD now. However, I think it would be worthwhile for you to get a masters first. "Portfolio management" is too broad for a research interest and you need to come up with something more specific to write in your statement of purpose. If you are willing to consider Canada, the following maybe good options for you:

University of British Columbia
Queens University
Brock University
University of Saskatchewan
Lethbridge University
Concordia University

I understand that you are doing a masters in finance now. However, if you don't have any research experience to show for, you might still want to consider an additional MSc in Finance first.

As I have only researched the top 25 programs in US, it's hard for me to recommend US universities to you. There maybe threads here that discuss second tier program; have a look around.

I am 42 applying for phd with an MBA from a Top global university in India after 20 years..is it likely that i will be considered favorably for admissions based on my quant capabilities, i expect to repeat a 750-800 on the GMAT (Q59, V 43 IR 10 AWA 6) but recommendations will be from contacts of 20 years ago, with last 5 years in self study and financial analysis business experiments

Undergraduate education is from one of the original IITs MBA GPA was 3.12 ( 3.9 aftr conversion) and BTech was 3.0 how do you think I should choose my schools

What does my profile say to you in terms of where we are going? Do i have a sense of Ph D Finance/Economics with what i have or do I need to go out and look for a new tree for the farm.
