I think it’s more fair to say that finance departments want a subset of econ PhD’s. Let’s face it, if your specialty is in, say, labor economics, you’re probably not going to receive a job offer from a finance department, even if your PhD is from a top program.

As such, a PhD is a very individualistic degree (although science PhDs may spend a lot of their time working in groups and collaborating on projects).
