Some Background info.

I have a Masters in Commerce fom an Indian University already (with first class marks, but I have low marks for Security Analysis and Portfolio Management since I was ill on that day. However, I can get very good reference letter from my professor, indicating my true abilities).

I have three experience as an accountant in a small company and I have been teaching at post graduate level for the past two years.

I am planning to appear for GMAT in June.

My plan is to work for one or two years after I complete the MSc at Strathclyde (preferably in academics .Consulting is the second choice) to recover the money invested. My final aim is to do PhD in Accounting from a good university in the USA and I am willing to do anything for that. I love teaching and doing research.

I have now got a place at Graduate School of Accounting,University of Strathclyde,uk, for MSc in International Accounting and Financial Studies. The program focuses on theories and current research in Accounting (Normative and Positive theories of Accounting, Comparative Studies of Accounting Standards and practices in different countries, Management Accounting, Financial Statement Analysis and research methods in Accounting, along with Statistics for Accounting and finance). There is a comprehensive in-depth coverage of corporate finance also. I can select two optional subject as part of the program. My aim is to do PhD in Accounting, after sometime, in the USA. Can any one advise me on selecting the optionals in order to make my PhD application more attractive ?

The list of optionals

1) Case Studies in Corporate Finance

2) International Money and Capital Markets

3) Options and Futues

4) Security Analysis

5) Portfolio Theory

6) Statitics and Econometrics for Accounting and Finance

7) Treasury Management

8) Money and Capital in Developing Countries

I am interested in International Money markets, Security Analysis and Portfolio Management.

Should I take Econometrics? It is covered in the coursework of almost all good Universities in the USA.

I am looking forward to a learned advice.
