I am considering of attending PhD in Finance (or DBA in Finance) programs and currently doing some research work. Does anybody know where i can find a full list of good doctorate programs in finance or their rankings on the internet? (most rankings I could find are very short)I heard that most PhD programs are either academic oriented or industry oriented, right? thx!

You might try over at
There's no ranking but (quant) finance PhDs are discussed a lot in the student forum there so scanning the old messages might help

You can use the PhD Rank in's MBA ranking as an approximation. I say approximation because I would give Harvard and MIT a *much* higher score.

I passed! I did not get a chance to tell you before the exam - but your site was excellent. I will definitely take it next year for Level II.
