Based on my experience, I can think of two reasons as to why I strongly recommend the Management PhD program at Florida. First, the faculty there are truly committed to mentoring, training, and collaborating with students. Not only was my advisor deeply invested in my development, but all of the faculty in the department seemed to have a vested interest in my progression from being a student to a professor. Second, the faculty at Florida helped to ensure that I was 100% ready for competing for top jobs on the academic market. From having multiple publications, to practice job talks, to mock interviews, I felt totally prepared for applying, competing for, and ultimately accepting an ideal job.
