I am planning to take up online econ/math courses ( real analysis, measure theory) and R/ Stata courses as well. Which kind of certifications will be considered by admissions committee ( any course certification from US univs?) Can someone specify some certification courses covering the above topics which can compensate for the lacking in maths/econ courses? I do know I like research , but till now most people have suggested me to go for a Masters rather than a Phd. is there any hope for me to get into a PhD econ program with this profile? Kindly suggest some schools I can apply to for both Phd & Masters in econ/ Financial economics where I might have a chance! Any suggestions are welcome! Would really like to gain some insights. Thank You!
