Hello everyone, I am new to this forum. It is really great to have a place where one can interact with and learn from each other.

I am 31 years old and interested in a Ph.D. in Finance. Nevertheless, I believe I might end up applying to a Ph.D. in Accounting or Economics due to a relatively poor math background. I basically would like to know whether you guy think that, in general, I stand a better chance of admission: Finance, Accounting, or Economics. I am planning to apply for Fall 2011 entry.

He is my profile:

Age: 31

Graduate: MBA with a concentration in Marketing from a decent U.S. school. By decent I mean it gets in the US & World Report ranking every now and then, between position 60 and 90 (okay so it is really not a highly ranked school). GPA: 3.6/4.0

GMAT: 730, V (41), Q (48).

Math background:
Calculus I (basically differential) (A)

Calculus II (basically integral) (100/100)

Multivariate Calculus (100/100)

Differential Equations (100/100)

Linear Algebra (95/100)

Recommendations: I am sure to get very good letters from faculty I have done research with, although the topics are probably not the most attractive in the world of finance.

Research: I have co-authored an article related to finance. The article has not been published, but might be submitted to a journal by the time I apply.

I have no training in intermediate macroeconomics or microeconomics.

Can you please evaluate my profile for a Ph.D. in Finance, Accounting, and Economics? Do you think my math background is average, below average for each program? Can you please suggest additional math courses to take? How much would intermediate macro and/or micro help?
