PhD Grads Head to Top Schools in US, Europe

All nine of the Haas School's PhD graduates this year have landed positions at top universities in the US and Europe.

Among the graduates, three studied business and public policy, three studied marketing, two were in organizational behavior, and one was in finance.

Eight of the nine graduates will work as assistant professors, while one graduate has accepted a post-doctoral position at Stanford University's Shorenstein Asia Pacific Research Center.

Three graduates will cross the Atlantic to share their ideas and expertise in Europe at the London School of Economics, the University of Navarra in Spain, and INSEAD in France.

"The Haas PhD program continues to train some of the most sought-after new professors at the top business schools," says Miguel Villas-Boas, director of the Haas PhD Program and the J. Gary Shansby Professor of Marketing Strategy. "The fact that all of our graduating PhD students landed positions at such well-respected research universities is a major accomplishment. Top schools are interested in tapping the pioneering new ideas generated at Haas."

Three graduates will take their knowledge to the East Coast, where they will teach at Yale, Rutgers, and New York University. One graduate is moving to the South to teach at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn., while another graduate is staying in the Bay Area to teach at Santa Clara University.
