The aim of this new topic is to give, for those who have the will to pursue a Ph.D., a compass.

It is not important whether you have a blurry idea of what a PhD is or not, from now you do know how and where to start your journey.

So, straight to the point. :)


What is really a Business School ?

UNIVERSITY AND BUSINESS SCHOOL RANKING



Ph.D Application

Papers Repository



Ph.D Proposal

The key element of your entire Ph.D process is the proposal. In other words: the idea of research you have. Besides GMAT score, LOR, CL, and so on this is the most important thing: What, When, How, and Why of your proposed research. Eventhough, this is a thing that you must do once you are accepted, even BEFORE to get in you can thrive this idea to show up the commission and so reinforce your application (often this idea goes into your SOP or Cover Letter).At the bottom you can download an attachement with 2 useful templates.

Added a clear-cut steam line on WHY you want a PhD.

It is so important to understand why you want to pursue a doctorate. Aside the fact that you submit your application or not, or you will be accepted or not.

Could be a waste of time. The tenure track nowday is really tough. See my new attachment in the first post The disposable academic

Regards
