I've got a masters degree in finance from a secnd rank university (nOt like Russian economic school). I think that it isn't known in the US at all. Have I got a chance to enter PhD in the US or better to drop the idea?

it depends on the rank of schools you are planning to apply to, GRE score (schould be very-very good), and your reaserch interests.. good luck..i think that you can make it..

Hi, depends a lot ,
PhD in Finance implies you you want to get into a B-School (that's where Fin depts are). To tell the truth, it's a longshot, Finance PhD program is the most competitive among other B-School concentrations, and B-Schools PhD programs are the most competitive among any other schools (many reasons - opportunities, amounts and conditions of fin aid etc). But there's nothing unachievable. But what'll matter is your mathematical background - not your fin, econ , whatever prior knowledge. That's why te degree from say PhysTech or MexMat MGU would definitely help.
