I think first of all, you need to let him/her know about what is Finance research. In general Finance is a sub-field of Economics, which needs very sophisticated maths and statistics. Research in Finance could be very boring and tedious, and the current job market for Finance is not as good as you can imagine(Don't think that if you got a Finance PhD you can make tons of money, that is not really true...)

If he/she really likes Finance research, then the next question is how to get into a good program. I think the most important thing is to find a "suitable" school, where you can actually find someone to work with and the faculty there are willing to help you out. So don't focus too much attention on "top 10" or "top 20", if he/she is smart and hard-working, the future would be good, don't worry too much about the ranking of programs.

If you want to get into a Econ program and then do Finance, you have to get into "top 20", what I said above is for Finance PhD programs, for which rankings are not so important. But there are so many ECON people, so you have to graduate from a top ECON program to get a Business School job. Remember that ECON does not belong to STEM, which means it is not really easy to get greencard and usually there are not many industry-related jobs in US. So doing a ECON PhD is primarily an interest-driven decision.

Hope that helps! The last thing I suggest is, he/she should do something related to Empirical Finance, not for theoretical asset pricing.

谢谢ting9112的指点, 既作跳板又找工作的话,NYU、CMU 1.5年的MFE好?还是Duke 2年的MAE好?

谢谢rainbowserie的指点,恭喜你将就读Northwestern Kellogg的quant Marketing Ph.d。终于如愿华丽转身,真是可喜可贺!再请教个问题:你07-12年一直想读Finance/economics  PhD,想必对Finance/economics PhD及其职业特点了解得非常透彻,现在就读quant Marketing Ph.d,是因为Marketing比Finance /economics 更有前途或更有趣,还是因为和商学院的以色列教授做过Marketing方面研究后爱上了它,亦或是其它原因,可以谈谈认识吗?

找工作的话肯定是CMU和NYU好,然后学术跳板的话就是DUKE和LSE。
貌似没有很明显的既是跳板又可以找工作的。
因为这些都不一定的。

国内大部分项目在海外都没啥声誉(IAS跟国内其他地方比算不错了, 不过跟只要还可以一点的学校的美本/硕比就差点意思了) Finance相比econ要更难录取, 每个系每年就录那么几个人, top program没有个跳板基本希望渺茫. Econ里确实有人往finance方向发展,但个人感觉在job market上跟finance phd竞争还是处于劣势. 跳板大家都分析的很清楚了, 那几个还是各有侧重的, 基本没有很明显既能找工作又跳板的. 部分好的跳板又不在美国, 去了肯定要做好可能在欧洲读PhD的准备. 另外个人感觉没有什么事情是可以完全一**规划好, 其实不确定性和不同的选择利弊得失的权衡才是人生主旋律和让生活很有意思的原因,无论最后的归宿多好, 假如一步步都和自己的设想100%吻合也是一件挺没意思的事情.

I think all you need to do is publishing a good paper in a particular field, and then get good recommendation letters from some famous professors in that field. As long as your school is not too bad, you can get a job. I choose Marketing because it is more relevant to my current PhD thesis. I am studying complex network dynamics, I am really interested in how it could be applied to social networks. I think it would be the future for Business research, either in Finance or Marketing or other fields.

Actually this year I will not be attending Northwestern University. As I have to finish my PhD thesis here. I want to try the job market next year without doing a "Actual" PhD in Business, although I know that it is going to be tough, but I already have enough training and research credits, so I just want to have a try, might be a little bit crazy

I think you have to graduate from a top ECON program, and work with the famous Finance Professors to write your thesis. Otherwise that is going to be tough. Actually the job market for Business School PhDs are becoming more and more difficult, you have to do very well to get a job. I think it is actually the normal trend as more and more people jump in, and the market will eventually saturates, restore to equilibrium. After all, getting a PhD in Business should have no difference than getting a PhD in Natural Science or Engineering. In term of training, Science/Engineering PhDs technically probably better even...

根据你的背景和多年接受的自然科学训练,我觉得你现在的选择是对的,即读完物理博士直接上市,何况你还有化学物理/化学工程的学位,亦具备金融/市场方面的知识和训练,既可以搞专业又可以转行搞投资,只要愿意去业界,很多地方适合你,前途无量。我知道一位芝大物理博士,08年金融危机时适逢毕业上市,一家大型咨询公司偏偏看中了他。
