If you want to go to USA for PH.D , want to choose this as your lifecareer,
and want to find a not bad job in USA,then if you do not attend top 10 universities,
your dream is hard to be fulfilled.
To make preparation,you have to learn as more mathematics as possible now.And
if you want to learn finance,it is more urgent for you to learn them.You should
go to Mathematics Department to choose courses now/or Phisics Department.You had
better take the exams,then your transcripts of these math courses will greatly
enhance your chances of getting fellowship.You have to learn following math:
nonlinear programming, dynamic optimal control(dynamic programming),real analysis
probability theory(offered by math department),statistics,mathmatical analysis)
Math department),differential equation.If you can learn Topology and stochastic
process,that's wonderful.
All thse materials will be used in Top 10 universities'5 year Ph.D life.
Especially if you want to make some real contribution in this career,you have to learn them.
For economics, when you study mathematics,you can learn following books(which is
intermediate or a little advanced)
Micro:microeconomic analysis, Varian Univ of Michigan,Ann arbor
Game Theory for applied economist,Gibbons,Cornell University
Macro:Abel(Univ of Pennsilvania),and another guy(I do not the name clearly,he
is from Princeton)'s book, Paul Romer's "advanced Macroeconomics',Barro's
economic growth. Lucas and Prescott"Recursive Methods in Dynamic economics"(the
hardest one and the most classic and popular one).
Econometrics:there is a person,whose name has "Juge" in it,his book is good,maybe New York
University. Green's book,Hamilton 's book.(They are a little advaced,which are for my first
year couses.)
Finace:John Hull's book, University of Toronto,
Qifu Huang's foudatition of finacial theory,Yale University
This guy is a Chinese,very famous in Finance,my idol.
There are also many advaced books.But I think,if anyone can learn all those math
and half of the above books,that will gurantee you be top students in top 10 universities.
