# Research Areas on Math in Business

Hi everybody!

I may be taking up graduate study for a PhD in Business Studies. I will need a research area. What is better than having a research area of application of math in business. I am thinking to research on Energy Economics. But I have no idea what it is. I also have no idea what are the latest developments of Mathematics in Business, Finance and Economics. So, I hope fellow Brilliantants can offer some suggestions. I need to submit my research proposal by July 10, 2015. Hope that you people can help me.

Thanks.

I took the liberty of asking this as a question here since you weren't getting any advices here.

I hope you don't mind me doing that.

You can check out that link if you want. There aren't any answers posted on it yet but there are a few comments from fellow users on that site.

Personally, I agree with some of them who pointed out about why would you want to research on something you aren't even familiar with. My advice (which is not worthy enough as it's coming from a 17 y/o) would be that you think about which area of business studies do you know about and would like to pursue further for research. If you have no idea about what "Energy Economics" is, I suggest you google it and read some scholarly articles on it. Maybe even check out the Wikipedia article on it. Bottom line, think up of something that you'd have an interest in researching upon. And after you do, google and internet is your best friend. Dig up as much information as you can and then decide upon something.

And yeah, best of luck! I hope we get to call you Dr. soon. :)

I don't think I will be doing it. I will delete this after you have read it.
