    Profile Evaluation [PhD in Accounting]

    Sponsored Ad:
    Hi there,

    Please see my profile below:

    Undergraduate in Accounting (not in North America) GPA: 3.3
    Master in Accounting (top 3 in Canada) GPA: 3.3
    Work Experience: 3 years +, Non-big 4 in Canada and got my CPA designation
    GMAT 720

    I made up my mind about PhD Accounting after I started working and I couldn't go back change the history. I saw my research related skills as a major weakness so I did a few online courses in econometrics, math for programming(not proof-based math), programming(python) and finance. My skill set is getting better but I don't think that will be good enough. So my questions are:

    1. What do you think that I can improve with my profile?
    2. I've been told how important math is for PhD in Accounting. But I'm not sure what are the other sources from which I can learn and, more importantly, prove that I got the math skill required. Can you please share some sources for math learning?

    Thank you in advance for all your help!

    Are you currently in the US? Community college courses in math are sufficient to show that you are working on picking up the needed skills.

    Also, who will write letters for you? You will need letters from active researchers. Do you still have connections from the Master's program? Reminding some professors of who you are and talking to them about getting a PhD could be a good start.
