  1. Microeconomics Professor -IIM Indore under whose supervision I completed the Microeconomics project
  2. Macroeconomics Professor- IIM Indore- Who took courses
  3. Macroeconomics Professor - IIM Indore - Who took courses

Concerns: My first concern is the GRE Quant score which I know isn't good enough .


I know my profile is lacking in the following: RA ships, Not enough math/econ courses. I am planning to take up online econ/math courses ( real analysis, measure theory) and R/ Stata courses as well.


Kindly suggest some schools I should apply to for PhD in business economics/ managerial economics / MS in Public Policy?


Also, should I consider retaking GRE because of my low quant score?
