Yes, if you can enroll in some quant-related courses now it will do a couple of things, show good self-awareness as well as signal to admissions committees your seriousness for preparing for the program. I am assuming your quant score is low on your GMAT, so this will be very important. Your background and goals are interesting, so that works in your favor. cheers, Alex
