Hey Guys,

I wish to apply to financial economics and financial engineering programs. I have an undergraduate major in International business. My major is not at all quantitative, due to which I won't be a favorable candidate. I have 51Q on the GMAT. Will a near perfect score on the GRE Subject Test in Math improve my odds or am I wasting my time ? Do you think having a quantitative undergrad major is the only way for admissions to the above programs.
Let me know your views on this.

Cheers.

Don't waste time on the GRE. Your GMAT Q score is good, but GMAT math is algebra and geometry, asked in the most confusing way possible.

Your issue won't be with your major, it will be with the prerequisite classes the programs require and the fact your major most likely didn't include or require these classes. You can rectify this by taking the required classes at night or through a local, different university. Each program will be different and some might have a math bootcamp for well qualified applicants. Focus on that.
