Mathematics for economists instead of math

I recently changed my decision to pursue studying economics at PhD level. But one problem is that I didn't take any math subjects as I didn't feel it was needed. But I cannot take math subjects anymore as I am studying overseas (uni didn't let me take). So as detour, I took three mathematics for economists which cover optimisation, calculus, matrix, real analysis and differential equation. Obviously, it has less contents than pure maths. But do you think these maths for econ are enough to be admitted?

 

I want to study applied economics (I/O, game theory) at business school
