Applicant Background for PhD econ from Ivy League OR LSE / PSE

Zia Muneer


Hi all,

I am from Pakistan, currently doing MS Economics (Research intensive) and planning to apply for PhD Economics later this year. My priority is to get into programs at Ivy Leagues / LSE or PSE but i am little confused as i don't have maths undergrad background. I did business studies in Bachelor's and after that having two years of field research experience (funded by UN / WHO). To complement research work, i started MPhil Economics with thesis and would be completed by December this year with CGPA around 3.7. I heard top institute looks for applicants with strong maths background, if thats the case then what should i do now to make them feel i am a potential candidate? I have done Calculus 1, Calculus 2 (Harvard Anton), Business Maths & Linear Algebra (David C Lay), Intro to Stats, Statistical Inference during Bachelor's. In Masters, I have studied Maths for Economist (Simon Blume) and Mathematical Stats & Linear Algebra. I can further take additional course like Real Analysis at my current University. Please guide me how should i make my application stronger?

Thanks Buddies!
