What Grad-Dreams can do for you?
Students going for the Doctoral program abroad need to finalize the course-country-college(university) & the scope for their research specialization before applying. We first make sure that the candidates are eligible to apply for the Ph.D. program abroad. We carry out a thorough assessment of the academic credentials like; all semester marks from Bachelors, Masters & the respective GPAs, GRE, relevant (research) work experience, technical skillsets & more.
The institution & program selection is done after the academic assessment. In addition, we keep in mind the need for scholarship & funding options like GA / TA / RA (Graduate, Teaching & Research Assistantships) for the postgraduate students that may help students to get fee waivers or fully funded Ph.D. programs. Every year around more than 70% of our doctoral program applicants receive financial support up to 100%.
While we are very careful about student's research interests, we are also concerned about the family/ sponsor's financial capacity to fund the doctoral program, just in case, they do not receive financial support from the institutions abroad.
By joining Grad-Dreams, you can save your precious time and efforts, while finding the right program at a reputed institution that suits your professional and financial criteria. For last 16 years, we have assisted a number of students, professionals, researchers to join doctoral programs worldwide in specializations like; Biological Sciences (CMB, Cancer & more), Physical Sciences, Pharmaceutical & Health Sciences, Engineering & IT, Business Management, Mathematics, Social and Behavioral Sciences, Psychology, Arts & Humanities & many more.

Many times, students make this blunder of not taking the GRE test. We understand that especially working professionals do not get time to study for the GRE test. Whatever the case might be, a good GRE score (320+/340) makes your profile strong, even while applying to European institutions where GRE is not commonly required, we still highly recommend it though it is not mandatory.
We assume, students & professionals understand that pursuing a Ph.D. or a doctoral program abroad is a life-changing decision. Hence, we suggest students give a rational thought to the Doctoral plan abroad before they start studying and applying for scholarships.
‘Relevant work experience’ is always an asset! The admission decision-makers at various institutions abroad would always be impressed to find strong work experience on your resume with an inclination towards research. Quality work experience would demonstrate your professional strengths, and your potential to pursue PhD studies in your research specialization.
However, every year we work with exceptionally bright individuals, with a Bachelors as well as Masters Degrees, excellent GPA (grade point average) & GRE, quality research papers/publications (at least 2 to 3), usually with some short internships done during studies, with clear research ideas, but NO work experience! The good news is that these students have been able to receive full scholarships/ financial aid/research & (or) teaching assistantships. Most of these students went abroad to study the Doctoral Program in Science & Engineering studies.
Please do not attempt to study Ph.D. in Management if you are a fresher just out of college with an MBA degree! Gain relevant work experience (at least 8 to 10+ years) before you even think of a Doctoral Program in Management. Obtain a decent GMAT score, 700 / 800. Ensure that you can prove to the admission committee, your ability to make good business decisions and that you possess a strong analytical mind. It is also important to assure them that you can complete the Ph.D. program successfully, despite having little work experience.
However, we have been enrolling students interested in the Ph.D. in Management program with 2 to 6 years of work experience with/without GMAT & ready to pay the tuition fees around USD 10K to 20K / year (as getting a scholarship is going to be very tough for this kind of profile).
The Ph.D. program may turn into a disaster if you do not have clear Ph.D. study objectives or a research focus & you plan to do it just as a compromise. Lack of focus can turn your Ph.D. degree into a useless, obsolete & out-of-market thing at the end of it. Be careful!
This is as good as someone enrolling for a Ph.D. immediately after a Masters's degree because he / she is unable to find an OPT or employment in the USA. We can assist you while believing in miracles!
Our strong recommendation is to go for a Master’s program. Most of the institutions in North America, UK, Europe are involved in extensive research work having very good quality projects from global companies, government & relevant research institutions. Joining such institutions for the Master’s degree can give you a completely different perspective & insight about the overall study atmosphere to the extent that it may change your entire doctoral studies plan & the proposed research. You won’t be able to have this kind of clarity and focus in your home country.
However, if you are already involved in a quality research work in your home country, & you have a clear Ph.D. plan in your mind, then go ahead!
You need to have clarity on the following questions;
- Why do you deserve a scholarship?
- How can you contribute to your department & the institution abroad in terms of research?
- How can you convince the admission committee that you are the right person they are looking for?
- Do you have prior research experience in the same field?
- Whether you have prior experience or not, do you have at least a couple of research papers, publications on your name?
