I am still a ways off from applying to a PhD program, probably wouldn't try to enter until Fall of 2012, but I am trying to find some advice on what tier of schools I should be applying for.
I am interested in Management or Strategy as an area of emphasis.
Here are my stats:
GMAT: 730 (Verbal: 41, 93 percentile; Quant: 49, 89 percentile) - Take in 2008
Undergad: GPA 3.742, BS Cum Laude Civil Engineering from University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC), Minor in Business Admin
Graduate: GPA 3.95, MBA - Finance, from UMKC
I currently work as a engineer at global engineering firm and do a signficant amount of business and corporate strategy. I've been the main writer and moderator for brainstorming sessions for 3 business plans for different business units and am about to start a 4th.
