Dear Paul,

I am a new member of the GMATClub - in fact I have decided to take GMAT just a few days back. Can you please guide me on the basis of my profile and objectives given below:

Indian, Male, 36 years

Undergrad - Electronics Engineering - 1996 (9.07 out of 10)
Post Grad - Electronics Engineering - 1998 (9.57 out of 10)
Post-grad Diploma in Management (equivalent to MBA) - 2009 - A top-ranked Indian Management Institute - Among top 10% in the class

Work Ex - approx 10 years (including 2 years for MBA) with Indian Railways, one of the world's largest organizations - at a leadership position. Managing a work-force of approx 3,000. Received several recognitions and commendations on professional front

Extra-curricular Acts: Nothing much to talk about

Expected GMAT Score: around 700 (on the basis of first prep-test I gave this morning)

I want to do a PhD in Management from a Top-20 B-school, with emphasis on Strategic Management - and post that I want to go towards academics/research (both usually go together in India). But I am not sure where my profile would place me, or rather which schools/PhD-courses I should aim for.

Can you please guide me some on this?

Regards,

Hi muditc:

To be honest, I am not very familiar with PhD programs in management. I know that the competitive nature of these programs is not as frothy as the top 10 or 15 business school programs in the US.
What I have seen is that the applications to PhD programs are generally shorter in nature and focus more on your academic performance. I also know that they generally require a statement of purpose, rather than a set of essays.

The overarching purpose of a PhD program is centered on research. So they are going to want to see evidence of prior work. Do you have this? This is a question that only you can answer. If so, and with a solid GMAT score, and based on my limited knowledge of PhD programs, I do not see why it would be impossible to gain entry into a top 20 program.

I hope this helps.

Respectfully,
Paul Lanzillotti
