Ranking of colleges, programs, departments and faculty has reached a feverish pitch in recent years. Missing from the vast list of rankings is research covering doctoral programs in finance. This study ranks 91 U.S. finance doctoral programs based on productivity of current finance department faculty, graduates of those programs, and a survey of doctoral program directors/chairs. The resulting rankings should be of value to those seeking to earn a finance doctorate in the future as well as satisfy the natural curiosity of finance faculty regarding bragging rights on their respective doctoral programs.
