    I would like to take PhD after my master course. I studied Accounting and Finance in my undergraduate study and I will be studying at CASS MSc Finance this September.

    However, the master course is considered to be a conversion and general course (some modules I have learnt in my undergraduate course like econometrics, portfolio theory, derivative pricing and risk management) and I believe it is less quantitative.

    Many of the PhD candidte have background in economics / econometrics and quantitative background. Is it possible for me to study PhD in Finance? Are there any advice for me if I want to study PhD in Finance? I am planning to study CFA level 1,2 during my master course (although not really a plus to the PhD). What else can I do during the year?

    Thank you
