The Times Higher Education World University Rankings are based partly on a global survey of academics with regard to research, teaching, and international outlook, as well as the citation frequency of publications and various statistical data.

Phd programm with low grades in master's?

by -

I'm really interested in doing a phd, possibly in the US, and I'm wondering what my chances are of getting into any school. I'm looking into management, possibly entrepreneurship. I'm a woman, if that makes any difference.
I am just about to finish a master of science in business economics at the highest ranked university in germany, graduating two semesters early, but have low grades.
the grades are average for my school but will look bad compared to the usual US grades. All research papers I wrote got grades way above average so far, but exam grades aren't good

Yes, no, maybe

"Any ideas of where this could get me?"
You might be accepted into a PhD program. Completing a Master's in Germany (assuming that you are not a native-German speaker) will look good. The grades are used primarily to indicate that you are serious about the topic, and can handle advanced coursework.
"I know I won't be able to get into a top school, but how competitive are lower ranked universities?"
Don't approach the universities with this sort of attitude. Going to graduate school in the US means that they chose YOU out of many applicants. Just because one school ranks higher than another does not mean your chances for acceptance are lower
